Effective July 1, 2016, and in accordance with federal regulations pertaining to effort certification on federal awards (Uniform Guidance Subpart E §200.430), MBL effort reporting procedures have changed. Sponsored project personnel are no longer required to certify effort on a monthly basis. The new semiannual payroll verification process will require that Principal Investigators certify effort for all project personnel every six months. Please note that the process for PI review of project expenditures and correcting project salary cost allocations (and any applicable cost corrections) will continue on a monthly basis in consult with the appropriate Research Administrator (RA).

Principal investigators will have approximately 30 days to complete their semiannual payroll verification statement for the 6-month time period beginning either January 1 thru June 30 or July 1 thru December 31 of each year.
