Hyperion calculation business rule, which is the “Calculate” part in the process of “Calculate, Allocate, PUSH and Aggregate”, has been fixed so that the FTE will not be included when calculating out Additional Earnings (Earnings Expense), Benefits (Benefits Expense), or Tax Details (Total Taxes). It will no longer be necessary to inflate the Override Option Values for the Additional Earnings, the Benefits, or Tax Details when creating budgets for FY20.

Previously, the calculation business rule was taking the FTE into consideration when calculating total compensation. Those position’s whose FTE was less than 1.0 were being under-budgeted. As a result, it was necessary for users to be trained to inflate the Override Option Values by the position’s FTE for those compensation elements that had a Value Type of Amount. Those compensation elements included additional earnings, benefits, as well as the tax element OPB$.
