Despite heroic efforts by many individuals involved in the project, significant technical challenges with the on-line effort certification module led to the decision to use the traditional paper-based process for the FY11 certification cycle. Staff in Sponsored Programs Administration (SPA) are distributing the paper reports this week. Deadline for return of signed certifications to SPA is Friday, September 30.
The templates for appointment letters issued by UNH departments to new status, temporary adjunct salaried and hourly staff, and postdoctoral associates now include reference to the mandatory effort certification training.
UNH is currently collecting Personnel Activity Reports (PAR’s) for
FY10. Timely completion of the PAR’s is a UNH policy and a federal
requirement subject to audit and financial penalties. UNH policy requires return of signed FY10 PAR’s by October 1, 2010.
