If fringe benefits are included in the budget, the fringe benefit total dollar amount must be entered into the TxDOT and/or Match boxes at the bottom of the screen. The fringe benefit total dollar amount must match the totals from the TxDOT and/or Match boxes. Once saved, the system will calculate the TxDOT and Match percentages. In addition, a breakdown of the fringe benefit rate must be added in the breakdown of fringe percentages box.

It is the intention to maximize the enforcement activity in the STEP grants by including the maximum amount of funds in (100) Salaries, A, Enforcement (overtime). With this in mind, the Subgrantee must develop their budget within the following levels:
a) The TxDOT amount of PI&E Activities (overtime), under (100) Salaries, B, must not exceed ten (10) percent of the Total TxDOT Salaries budgeted under (100).
b) The TxDOT amount of Other (i.e., overtime staff, supervisory support, conducting surveys, etc.), under (100) Salaries, C, must not exceed ten (10) percent of the Grand Total TxDOT amount budgeted.

Note: Subgrantees requiring the use of officers above the rank of lieutenant for enforcement activities must complete the Rank Authorization Request for Approval form and submit it to TxDOT. The request must be approved prior to the incurring of any enforcement costs for officers above the rank of lieutenant.

If you receive the error 'The Fringe totals do not match', you must allocate the total fringe benefit amount into either the TxDOT or Match fringe benefit boxes. These two boxes must equal the Total Fringe Amount.
