Effort Certification

The University of Memphis effort certification reporting policy (UM1676 Certification of Effort) complies with the requirements of the Office of Management and Budget. As a condition of receiving federal funding, institutions must maintain an accurate system for reporting the percentage of effort that employees devote to federally sponsored projects. Compliance with this policy protects the University against penalties and funding disallowance due to inaccurate, incomplete, or untimely effort reporting.
