Training class: Effort Certification and Reporting

9:00 am

The federal government requires that the distribution of salary and wages to grants and contracts or other activities including teaching, patient care, and administration must be based on payrolls that are documented in the Effort Certification Reporting System. Effort certification training is recommended for all new department administrators who are responsible for effort, defined as the total time spent on university activities that an employee is compensated for. Although this class is designed for new administrators, it is also recommended for all effort coordinators who would like a refresher in using the system.

The session will be held on Thursday, March 17 from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in the Dominion Tower, 10th Floor Conference Room. Registration is available at ulearn.miami.edu. For additional information, contact the Office of Research Education and Training at 305-243-5092.
