Understanding my Effort Certification Responsibilities

Responsibility Overview


All PSU employees, including graduate students, who have
any salary paid from externally sponsored programs, must certify their effort.
Faculty, staff, and graduate students certify effort twice a year (Academic
Year and Summer) based on actual labor cost distributions established through a
work plan with updates as necessary. Operating staff (including adjunct) and
other hourly employees certify effort through bi-weekly payroll system.
