Web-based Effort Certification for Sponsored Projects Launches
If your work involves a grant, contract or other agreement with a federal agency, listen up — life is about to get a bit easier.
On July 8, the Office of Grants and Contracts Accounting launched a new web-based application for all faculty, staff and students who are required to annually certify their salary distribution on sponsored and related support projects.
“The Electronic Annual Statement of Reasonableness (eASR) will improve overall compliance by providing a means of capturing electronic signatures, distributing and collecting reports, while allowing for the electronic storage of auditable documents,” said Amir Rahnamay-Azar, senior vice president for administration and finance.
The eASR will be available for fiscal year 2011 certifications, which must be submitted by August 31.
Faculty and staff members who should complete the eASR will receive an email from Grants and Contracts Accounting that will include a link to the statement. Questions regarding the new system can be sent here.
