It is accounted for in the calculation

Util = x/1920

The phrasing of the OP is a bit misleading. To clarify, PTO hours are not removed from the denominator when determining utilization.

Wow

PWC excludes it from the denominator

PwC1 & 2 are correct

PwC1 & 2 are correct

"Full" means out of total available hours in a year. "Effective" subtracts from available hours time you logged against vacation, illness, and possibly other types of time.

Apologies for the lack of clarity. Accenture calculates our chargeability as Sum Chargeable Hours/(2080-Holidays-PTO). I didn't realize that was out of the norm in consulting.

KPMG excludes PTO and training, among other things.
