UNH Research Faculty Policy Guide

Employment and Benefits Policies Guidance for UNH Research Faculty

  • The Office of the Senior Vice Provost for Research compiled this guide in an attempt to clarify the policies that impact UNH Research Faculty, and to distinguish between these official policies and some less effective practices and campus mythology.  

  • The topics included are those about which confusion has been recently expressed. 

Effort Certification

What’s essential?

Principal investigators are responsible for ensuring that all effort commitments for their sponsored programs are:  regularly reviewed to reflect actual work performed; consistent with proposed effort; and, ultimately, certified.


Cost Sharing

What’s essential

OMB Circular A-110
establishes the following criteria for cost sharing for federally-sourced awards:

Cost Transfers

What’s essential?

A transferred cost must comply with all UNH policies and sponsor terms and conditions, including rules for allowability, reasonableness, allocability, and consistency.

Cost transfers, when necessary, must be timely; late cost transfers (more than 90 days after the end of the month in which the transaction occurred) must meet additional documentation criteria and be approved by Sponsored Programs Administration (SPA).
