Effort Reporting

All employees funded by federal grants are responsible for making certain that their reported distribution of payroll is an accurate representation of the effort expended on sponsored projects.

Annually, an Effort Report Form is distributed to each faculty and staff who receives federal grant-funded compensation.  Forms are distributed in August for the preceding academic and summer period.

The Principle Investigator has signature and certifying authority to confirm effort of all staff, if necessary.

All Effort Report Forms must be signed and certified, and returned to the Accounting Department, 221 Lane Hall.

On a bi-weekly basis, students who receive federal grant-funded compensation, submit time sheets documenting hours worked, which are approved by the Principal Investigator.

Please see theTime and Effort Reporting Policy and Procedures for more information.
