As far as I am aware, anything that isn't billable reduces your utilization.

Yeah it all goes against you.... So basically you get time off but you are punished for using it. Sensible, I know.

Only holidays don't effect utilization.

We are told to charge Available and not G&A (unless you are really doing smth administrative)

What PwC3 said. Holidays don't mess with it. Everything else does.

I am under the impression that charging G&A doesn't hurt your utilization (I could be wrong) because it shows up on your available snapshot hours.. don't hit that code to much or you won't be able to be at 80% of hours reviewed since only client chargeable time is supposed to be included in the actual snapshots
