Active participation in research projects and other sponsored programs may require additional efforts beyond those dedicated to the normal faculty workload of teaching and scholarship activities. It is presumed that a regular full-time faculty appointment includes teaching, scholarship/research and other departmental activities, and for such the faculty member is compensated according to the University-approved base salary.
Supplemental compensation on sponsored programs (grants, contract, etc.) is strongly discouraged, as remuneration using sponsor funds may be in direct conflict with federal regulations governing the use of these funds.
However, in unusual cases where consultation is  across departmental lines or involves a separate or remote operation, and  the work performed by the consultant is in addition to his regular departmental load, any charges for such work representing extra compensation above the base salary are allowable provided that  such consulting arrangements are specifically provided for in the agreement or approved in writing by the sponsoring agency.
Any request for supplemental compensation on sponsored programs, whether on active awards or within proposals, will be closely examined by the Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP) and Grants Accounting to ensure that all of the following criteria are met:
Requests for supplemental compensation on sponsored programs funds should be made through Baylor's secure website with approved login at https://bearquest.baylor.edu/.
