Sponsored Projects Accounting (SPA) emailed the annual Effort Certifications for the College of Medicine faculty and staff to Sponsored Research Administrative Services (SRAS) the last week of August. SRAS has begun to forward these to Department Administrators (DA) and they all should be distributed no later than the end of this week. Each DA should work with his/her unit’s faculty and staff to complete the certifications. Once the certifications are complete, the certification statements need to be returned to SRAS (a drop box is located in their office in the basement of the KY Clinic) who will log and compile them and return them to SPA. Please note the IBU runner, Wyatt Railey, makes regular stops in SRAS.
SRAS has reviewed the certifications for the following:
Checked for JVs to identify any changes greater than 5% and noted per SPA’s instructions.
Checked for trainees that may have been included but shouldn’t be certifying effort – DAs contacted separately regarding these certification statements.
Detailed instructions on completing the Effort Certifications can be found below:
