Calculation base in ECM and part timers on CAP % less than 100%


I wondered if someone be able to help out with another query I have. We have a handful of employees who have a CAP % of less than 100% in infotype 8. This means that for these people the annual salary amount we see in infotype 8 is the FTE rather than the actual. For the rest of our employees, who are 100%, their annual salary reflects what they actually get paid.

When the managers come to plan for the part timers in the salary planning screen in ECM portal, they will be planning on a calculation base of an FTE. While this is probably not an issue as whatever % is applied will be adjusted accordingly when the person runs through payroll, it does cause us an issue with the budget calculation. If we calculate the budget based on actual salary, then we will have a mis match u2013 here is my example:

Employee is on 75% work schedule, and their annual salary in IT8 is $100,000

The budget is calculated based on 3% of $75,000 = $2250

In the salary planning screen the manager will apply 3% to $100,000 = $3000

So, there is a discrepancy between what has been budgeted and what is planned.

We cannot calculate the budget based on the FTE annual salary as this inflates the budget amount by too much.

We could use the BADI to calculate the calc base differently for employee on less than 100% but if we do this, then the adjusted amount will be the actual, and when it is added back to infotype 8 it will be incorrect.

Does anyone else have a similar experience and if so, how did you resolve it?
