IT Works’ Time and Effort Certification and Reporting System is an easy to use, internet-based solution for administrators, faculty, staff, and research scientists. Designed for HR, financial and compliance management, it automates certification and reporting processes and enables your institution to meet the federal time and effort certification and reporting mandates outlined in the OMB Uniform Guidance.
Effort Administrator, our Time and Effort Certification and Reporting System is designed to interface with standard payroll and ERP systems and can be implemented as a stand-alone solution or integrated seamlessly with the entire suite of IT Works Grant Management Software Solutions.
IT Works recognizes that while the OMB Uniform Guidance defines effort certification and reporting requirements, the implementation of these requirements varies by institution. IT Works’ Effort Certification Software can be configured to act as an electronic version of your institution’s effort certification policy and facilitates employee participation in the certification process. Faculty and research scientists can review and certify their own effort as well as the effort of their research team. Administrators can oversee the certification process by organizational unit such as college, department, division, or program as well as for the entire institution.
IT Works’ Effort Reporting Software generates both effort certification statements for individual employees and managerial reports for sponsored programs, financial, and compliance administrators. Reports include:
- Both sponsored research and hard money
- Information in summary or detailed format
- Budget to actual comparisons
- Results in percentages or hours
- Information by individual or groups of employees
- Cost sharing and more
All time and effort reports can be quickly produced at the click of a button and provide information by employee and / or project.
Integration with other IT Works Grant Management Software Modules
IT Works’ Time and Effort Certification System can be implemented independently or integrated with our Grants Management System. When used as an integrated system, IT Works Grant Management Module supplies information regarding projects, sponsors, committed effort, and cost sharing to the certification and reporting process. This eliminates redundant data entry and data storage, and allows information to be maintained and controlled by the proper administrative unit (Payroll, Finance, Sponsored Programs, etc.)
