Compliance information

Grant Effort Reporting is key to maintaining Federal compliance with OMB A-21 section J-10 (c) 1.e, which states, “At least annually a statement will be signed by the employee, principal investigator, or responsible official(s) using suitable means of verification that the work was performed, stating that salaries and wages charged to sponsored agreements as direct charges, and to residual, F&A cost or other categories are reasonable in relation to the work performed.”

UAF’s policy is to certify effort every Spring, Summer, and Fall. The CFOS Grants Management Team and/or outlying units will send employees their individual forms for review and signature.
