This measure calculates the number of adjustments/deductions per full time equivalent (FTE) that performs the processes "process accounts receivable (AR)", "manage and process collections", and "manage and process adjustments/deductions" The Process "process accounts receivable (AR)" includes [Processing payments due from customers. This includes all processing of funds received, whether by check or electronically. This does not include the generation of invoices.]. The Process "manage and process collections" includes [Posting entries to respective accounts, and preparing accounts for receivables. Manage the cash collected by the business from its debtors.

Number of adjustments/deductions / (Number of FTEs who perform the process "process accounts receivable (AR)" + Number of FTEs who perform the process "manage and process collections" + Number of FTEs who perform the process "manage and process adjustments/deductions")
FTE - (full-time equivalent employee)
To calculate the number of full-time equivalents employed during the year for each respective process or activity, you must prorate the number of employees and the hours spent performing each process/activity. Assume that a full-time worker represents 40 hours per week. Provide the average number of full-time equivalents employed during the year for each respective process. Include full-time employees, part-time employees, and temporary workers hired during peak demand periods. Allocate only the portion of the employee's time that relates to or supports the activities identified for an applicable process. Prorate management and secretarial time by estimating the level of effort in support of each activity, by process.
For example, a part-time secretary in the finance department for XYZ, Inc. charges all of his time to finance department activities. He works 20 hours per week. The secretary splits his time evenly supporting employees working in the general accounting process and the financial reporting process. Thus, his time should be allocated by process. So, if he works throughout the year and supports these two processes, his time would be split evenly as:
20hrs/40hrs = .5FTE * 50% for general accounting = .25FTE for general accounting
20hrs/40hrs = .5FTE * 50% for financial reporting = .25FTE for financial reporting
Staff Productivity is a measure of the efficiency of individuals performing specific processes. Measures in staff productivity generally relate the transaction volume or outcome of the process with the effort in terms of full time equivalent employees to perform the process.
