Research Personnel Database
What is it?
Personnel Database is U.S. ATLAS's tool for budget and
funding, and to respond to Funding Agency requests for details
regarding the Collaboration. It is especially used to
determine funding levels. Therefore, it is imperative that the
database be kept up to date and accurate, so that your funding
may be accurately allocated.
Where does the data come from?
The data comes
from you, or your institutional representative. Follow
the links below for instructions for completing the database.
Where is the database?
The database is
located on the U.S. ATLAS server. You access the database
through your web browser. Follow this link to the
DATABASE. However, we suggest that you review the
instructions before you go to the database.
What can the database do for me?
The database can produce several reports which may be useful
to you as well as the Program Office and the Funding Agencies.
A description of the reports follows. The reports can be
printed or may be downloaded in Excel format for further
analysis. Selecting a report is as simple as selecting a link
and a drop-down box for the format and type of data you want
captured in the report.
FTE Report - This report profiles the Full-Time
Equivalent (FTE) for the selected institution. The report will
profile the reporting areas within which time is assigned,
summarize the FTEs for each category and subcategory, both at
CERN and Not At CERN, as well as FTEs spent on Non-Research
Activities and Non-ATLAS Experiments, and then total the
FTEs for ATLAS Time at CERN, ATLAS Time Not At CERN, and Total
ATLAS Time. In addition, the report totals the number of CERN
trips planned, and provides an average length of stay at CERN.
These reports can be produced for each individual category of
collaborator (i.e. Term Scientist, Technician, etc.), as well
as groups of categories (i.e. All Personnel, Scientific
Personnel, etc.). This report can be downloaded as an Excel
Reporting Area / Personnel
- This report lists each person and their worker
category in the institution and profiles the reporting areas
within which they are working. It summarizes the percentage of
their time for each category and subcategory, and for At CERN
and Not At CERN. Finally, it totals the percentage of time on
ATLAS and At CERN. Be sure to divide by 100 if you want to
know the FTEs.
FTEs by Reporting Area
Report - The title is the description. The report
simply lists each reporting area and the FTEs within that
reporting area in profile, both At CERN and Not At CERN. You
can select this report for All Personnel, Scientific
Personnel, and Non-Scientific Personnel.
Personnel at CERN 100% by
Year Report - This report shows ALL personnel in
the database whose time is 100% At CERN for the year selected.
Minority Summary Report
- This report summarizes the Minority data captured in the
database, as entered. No names or institutions are assigned to
this data. It summarizes Ethnicity, Race, Disability Status,
