CPM.  The new Costing and Pricing Module (CPM) within FMS is being rolled out across the University to replace pFACT.

Costing and Pricing Module (CPM)

The Costing and Pricing Module (CPM) replaces pFACT: software tool designed to support the costing of projects under Full Economic Costing principles.
 
CPM is linked to payroll information (including banded levels where appropriate) and is set up to automatically calculate the associated Indirect costs and Estates Charges within each faculty.
 
CPM has replaced pFACT and is currently being rolled out across the University for processing of Research Activity.  The authorisation process will be co-ordinated using the online tool.  

CPM can be accessed via FMS (link via Pegasus / Finance tab)
