Effort Reporting News and Announcements

Important Changes for FTERS, 2/1/2016

Certified effort statements are now only required from individuals being paid by one or more sources of federal/state/local funding (including pass-through agreements). Certified effort statements have been reduced to just two categories, Research & Sponsored Programs, or Professional & Other. Additionally, the post-review by the Dean has now been removed. These changes were made as part of the Excellence in Research Administration initiative.
