Effort Certification

Effort reporting is a process mandated by the federal government via 2 CFR 200 to verify that direct labor charges to, or provided via cost-share, sponsored projects are accurate, timely, and reflect the actual level of work performed by the individual. Effort is a portion of time spent on a particular activity and is represented as a percentage of the individual's activity. All principal investigators overseeing sponsored research at the SSW are required to participate in the certification process.
