Definition Source

"A faculty data element, expressed as a decimal fraction of a full-time faculty position (1.000), which indicates the share of a faculty person’s individual department appointment that is supported by the state instructional budget.  The value is not affected by tenure status, e.g., a non-tenured faculty teaching a full load of classes should be reported with an IFF of 1.000.  An “overage” of 25% over and above a 1.000 full time position is allowed under certain conditions as outlined in article 36 (“Additional Employment”) of the 2002 California Faculty Association labor relations contract."[1]
