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 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).

Subrecipient vs Contractor Agreement


Under the Uniform Guidance (2 C.F.R. §200), an organization is considered a subrecipient of a federal award when it:

1. Substantive, programmatic work or an important or significant portion of the research program or project is being undertaken by the
     other entity.

2. The research program or project is within the research objectives of the entity.

3. The entity participates in a creative way in designing and/or conducting the research.
