Tracking Research Dollars: eCertification Payroll Distribution System

March 1, 2014

Prompted by new federal regulations, AS is collaborating with the Dean of Research and Research Financial Compliance and Services on a new system to support certification of payroll charges for research projects.

The eCertification Payroll Distribution system will create an annual online report that displays the payroll distribution for each employee whose salary is charged wholly or in part to a project subject to federal regulations.

School/department administrators and Principal Investigators (PIs) will go online to review and formally certify the payroll distribution report for their associated research projects. In all, about 2,000 PIs and administrators are expected to use the system.

Development on the project began in Summer 2012, and the team successfully wrapped up a short pilot with a handful of users across campus in late 2013. The new system will be rolled out university-wide in phases beginning in early 2014.
