Accessing Effort Reports:
By Bookkeeping Unit
Note: Clicking on the account number will take you to that account in Account Explorer.
By Home Unit
Note: As the individuals certify their effort reports, a message will appear next to their name on the above lists indicating who certified their effort report and when it was certified. It is important for you to periodically review this list to determine the outstanding effort reports for your department and follow-up with those individuals accordingly.
Reviewing Effort Reports:
Click on the percentages below the "Academic/Annual Pay", "Summer Pay" and "Cost Sharing or Target Effort" columns to view detailed information.
Please note that the effort period is January 1 through June 30 and July 1 through December 31. Academic pay and summer pay are shown separately to make it easier to understand the percentages shown on the effort report. Grad Assistants and CTs (Biweekly) all full pay periods between January 1 -June 30 and July 1-December 31.
Adding Effort on a Sponsored Project Not Currently Listed on the Effort Report:
If you need to add effort on an account that is not listed on the effort report, search by Account which is below the section of sponsored projects, to the right in the blank box type in the account number and select the account in the drop down. If an account number has not yet been assigned, search by APP, the application (e-transmittal) number, type in the APP#. Then to the right click the “Add Effort on a Sponsored Project Not Listed Above” button. This will add the account/e-transmittal number to the effort report and allow you to enter the percentage of effort worked on the project.
Only the individual or a “delegate” may certify an effort report. A delegate is someone that has suitable means of verification that the work was performed as indicated by the percentages listed in the "% Effort Worked" column of the effort report. The first PI listed on a sponsored project account is automatically a delegate for that account, meaning they can certify the effort for any of the individuals who were paid or cost shared on that account. If you need to assign a delegate other than the first PI listed on an account, please see below:

In general, the same guidelines for who should certify an effort report in the old system are applicable in the new system.
