Effort Certification

University personnel whose salaries and wages are charged directly to sponsored agreements or as cost share are required to certify their effort.

For semi-monthly paid employees, a Peoplesoft report (job-aid)is reviewed, signed and dated once a year. Typically, the certificaiton of effort occurs during the August/September time period after the fiscal year. Certified effort reports must be submitted to the Cost Accounting Services department by the subsequent September 30 of each fiscal year.

For bi-weekly paid employees, the submission of hours process signifies the certificaion by the employee.
