Costing allocations for faculty, students, and staff should mirror the average distribution of performed effort, the accuracy of which PIs certify in the quarterly GCCRs and bi-annual Faculty Effort Certifications. Please help staff minimize the amount of time needed for follow-ups by either providing signed documents/electronic approvals quickly or scheduling time to raise any questions with them.

Due to the labor-intensive nature of Workday entries and the management of salary distributions, as well as to more accurately reflect performed effort, these should be projected over periods of time rather than authorized pay period to pay period. Applying costing allocations 1-2 pay periods at a time is extremely inefficient and is strongly discouraged.

Please contact your PI Cohort Lead for any assistance developing or managing long-term projections.
