  2. Under the Cost Management heading, select Cost Categories.

  3. If applicable, you may enter when the rate may change.  Select the day prior to when the new rate will take effect as the Effective Date.  Enter the new rate.  
  4. When finished, click OK.

Note: You may enter multiple new effective dates as Role-level rates change. It is recommended that the new effective date be the last date of the previous calendar period.  For example, if the new rate is effective as of Jan 1, 2017 of a monthly calendar, select 12/31/2016 as the effective date, as that is the last date of the previous period.
