|England Northern Ireland Scotland Wales
Compulsory for institutions in England. Compulsory for all institutions in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland that choose to make a return. Not required for institutions in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland that choose not to make a return.
This field records the proportions of an academic cost centre in terms of the contributing departments, i.e. what percentage of an academic cost centre is from a given department.
Not all departments will map to one academic cost centre, and not all academic cost centres may feature staff from only one department.
For that reason, the data collected for each academic cost centre/department mapping includes:
AcademicCostCentres.PROPDEPT exists to record the composition of an academic cost centre where more than one department contributes to it.
In the example below, there are two departments and two cost centres. The 'History' cost centre is comprised only of staff from the 'Department of Ancient History'. The 'Classics' cost centre, however, is populated 33.3:66.7 between the 'Department of Ancient History' and 'Department of Classical Studies':
The value in this field can be recorded to one decimal place and must be between 0 and 100. The length of this field is 5 characters, however data may be returned with or without leading zeros or the decimal place (e.g. 005.0 or 5.0 or 5).
For those institutions in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland wishing to make a return of academic department to cost centre mappings, the minimum requirement for such a return is that for each mapping, the fields AcademicCostCentres.ACCENTRE, AcademicCostCentres.DEPARTMENT, AcademicCostCentres.PROPACC and AcademicCostCentres.PROPDEPT must all be returned.
Further guidance regarding the calculating of proportions is available in the Further guidance on calculating proportions document.
