Faculty and Staff Full-Time Equivalents

Please Note: Detailed FTE reports are no longer available effective 2012/2013. Please see uView FTE Summary for 2012/2013 reporting.

These statistics are based on data provided by the Human Resources Division and Financial Services Division at the University of Saskatchewan for all staff supported from Operating Budget.

All reports listed above are formatted for 11″×14″, legal size paper.

Please note: Calculation of Vacancy FTEs (and the Permanent Complement calculation, which includes Vacancies) was changed in November, 2009 to correct false vacancies generated when account numbers changed in the period between budget forecasting and the generation of fiscal year-end FTE reports. The Vacancy column in the report has been changed to Estimated Vacancies because of situations where the data representing budgeted positions is not reconcilable with data representing actual positions due to incomplete or inconsistent data elements. As such, false vacancies could result in a small percentage of the calculations. The revised calculation was applied to all reports containing fiscal years 2006/2007, 2007/2008 and 2008/2009.

An error in the calculation of FTEs in the Admin/Support category in fiscal year 2007/2008 was corrected in November, 2009. This resulted in a rise in FTE's in this category, primarily in the General Admin column.

Starting in 2000/2001, the Faculty and Staff FTE report was automated. In addition to automating the report, new formulas and definitions were implemented for several job categories (e.g., Sessional Lecturers). These changes were the result of a thorough review to better standardize and fairly represent the actual workload required across all job categories, in addition to changes in collective agreements.

Since 2000/2001 there have also been changes to the academic and administrative hierarchy. These changes follow the Financial Services Division's hierarchy in place for 2000/2001 through 2004/2005. Where ever possible, the history of these changes has been reflected in the FTE reports.
