The effort reports for the Spring and Summer 2013 quarters are now available in the Effort Reporting System. You can access your department’s effort reports and begin the certification process. The certification deadline is Friday, February 7, 2014.

Please remind your Principal Investigators that they are required to self-certify their own effort. All other effort reports can be certified by the Principal Investigator, the employee or an authorized certifier with first-hand knowledge of the employee’s effort.

If you have outstanding effort reports from previous quarters, please continue to work on those as well.

Note: If an effort report status is not “Certified” the report is considered “open” and requires review and certification. Effort Reports with a “Not Required” status should be verified to determine if effort or cost sharing should be reported.
