How do I work with In Kind Rates
For the most part in kind rates are calculated values over which most users have no control. In Kind rate calculations only operate on the Estimate records.
The basic math of the In Kind Rate
The In Kind rate is calculated as follows:
1) Position duration in weeks X
2) Number of requested Openings (or Revised # of Openings) X
3) Number of Service days per week X
8 hours assume per day X
4) Independent Sector Rate
