# GLFG - FTE

**FTE Controls for GLBUFTUB**

This table is applied to FTE on the GLBUFTUB budget screen.

**Code Category: GLFG**

**Code Value: FTE**

Short Description: Not required.

Medium Description: Not required.

Long Description: Not required.

**Associated Numeric Values**

1-4: Reserved for future use.

5: If the fifth associated code contains the word "ROUND" this rounding logic will be used.The fifth numeric value will designate what decimal place will be used for rounding as follows:

0.01 = Round to the nearest cent (as it does now)

0.10 = Round to the nearest 10 cents

1.00 = Round to the nearest dollar

10.00 = Round to the nearest 10 dollars

100.00 = Round to the nearest 100 dollars

1,000.00 = Round to the nearest 1,000 dollars

10,000.00 = Round to the nearest 10,000 dollars

100,000.00 = Round to the nearest 100,000 dollars

1,000,000.00 = Round to the nearest 1,000,000 dollars

This is standard mathematical rounding. If the number to the right of the decimal place we are rounding to is 5 or higher the amount will round up. Otherwise it will round down. For example: If you are rounding to the nearest dollar and the answer computed is 100.50 or higher, the final result after rounding will be 101.00. If the answer computed is 100.49 or lower, the final result after rounding will be 100.00. Anything other than the above amounts are in the fifth associated numeric value or if "ROUND" is not in the fifth associated code then the calculations on GLBUFTUB will rounding to the nearest cent as it does now.When an FTE number is entered, the program will do its calculation based on the average annual salary as it does now. Then the results will be rounded based on the GLFG FTE common code as described above. The rounded results are then updated in the dollar amount field. The rounded answers will be stored in the database in the glba_budact_mstr table.This rounding logic also applies to the fringe benefit calculation. The fringe benefits will be calculated against the rounded dollar amount and then the fringe benefit result is also to be rounded based on the above logic.

**Associated Codes**

1: Four-character Object Code / Group from GLUPGN. This tells the system which OBJ / OBJ group to use.

2-4: Reserved for future use.

5: If the fifth associated code contains the word "ROUND"; rounding logic will be used (see description for Associated Value 5).

**Associated Descriptions**

1-5: One or more code values, separated by commas that allow FTE's to be entered. For example, if Code 1 was OBJ, and Description 1 was 2000,3000 then if a user tried to enter an FTE for any budget record where the State Object code is not 2000 and is not 3000, an error will be generated.Note: All 5 descriptions can be used but only the first code will be used.
