Contract Date Calculations

Contract dates are calculated based on IC Coordinator input. Read below for guidelines.

Contract Start Date

  • If you enter a date in Full Time Employment Start Date that is earlier than October 1 of the current fiscal year, the system will keep this date in the field, but will set October 1 as the contract start date.

  • If you enter a date in Full Time Employment Start Date that is between October 1 and September 30 of the current fiscal year, the system will keep that date in the field, and set it as the contract start date.

  • The system will not allow you to enter dates in Full Time Employment Start Date after September 30 of the current fiscal year, alerting you with the error message, “Applicant is not eligible to participate in the LRP program this year

Contract End Date

The contract end date is calculated as the contract start date + duration of the FOA (Program).
