We are currently in the process of developing an electronic effort report that we hope to have implemented during calendar year 2014. We will be working closely with the campus Sponsored Programs Offices and Departmental Research Administrators as we go through the development process. Until then you will continue to receive the paper-based effort reports, which will be distributed shortly to all employees who have expended effort on a sponsored award between July 1, 2013 and December 31, 2013 and must certify an Effort Verification Report (EVR). Please contact your campus Sponsored Programs Office if you worked on a sponsored award during this time period and do not receive an EVR by February 28, 2014. The signed EVR’s should be returned to your Sponsored Programs Office within 30 days of distribution to your department.
Training is available on EVRs and other sponsored programs compliance issues on the Controller’s Financial Compliance Training website. If you have any questions, please contact your campus Sponsored Programs Office.
