Person-Months

What is a person-month and how do I calculate it?

A “person month” is the metric for expressing the effort (amount of time) principal investigators (PIs), faculty and other senior personnel devote to a specific project. The effort is based on the type of appointment of the individual with the organization; e.g., calendar year (CY), academic year (AY), and/or summer term (SM); and the organization’s definition of such. For instance, some institutions define the academic year as a 9-month appointment while others define it as a 10-month appointment.

For more details and examples of how to calculate person-months, see NIH guidance. A percent to person-month calculator is also on the final tab of Rowan's budget template.
