Additional Considerations for US Funding Proposals

NIH Time & Effort

NIH requires the use of Time & Effort Reporting whereby the principal investigator certifies the time and effort of all employees who worked on the project and had salary expenses charged to it. See Circular A-21, published by the Federal Office of Management of Budget (OMB).

In an effort to ensure that our principal investigators meet audit requirements,we have developed a NIH Time and Effort Certification form that should be used to track the time and effort of all employees working on an NIH Project. The form is located in in our Forms Cabinet.
