3 What is the Effort Tracking Report? Describes the effort that faculty, professional (exempt) and staff (non- exempt) employees expend on the various activities of their university work.

4 Some Effort Tracking Terms Open – term is ready for input Closed – effort tracking is concluded Spread – allocate effort to activities Certifier – inputs the allocations Authorizer – final approver of data input

5 Why do we do it? Data from the Effort Tracking Report are used in meeting the following: –The federal government requires that direct personnel charges to contracts and grants be documented (OMB Circular A-21, Revised) –The federal government requires a time and effort report to document the Facilities & Administrative (F&A) Rate negotiated between them and the University (OMB Circular A-21, Revised) Also, data collected is used in the F&A Rate Proposal which results in over $60M of revenue to the University annually

6 Why do we do it? Data from the Effort Tracking Report and Instructor Workload Report are combined to produce the Instruction and Research (I&R) Data File The I&R Data File is used to fulfill the following requirements: –Legislative requirement that each full time instructional faculty member produce at least 12 contact hours (F.S. 1012.945) –F.S. 1008.46 requires monitoring of performance in each of the major areas of instruction, research and public service

7 What Is the IRD? Instructional and Research Data File Combines data from the Instructor Workload File, PeopleSoft ® HR and Cost Analysis Satisfies state and federal requirements –Office of Management and Budget Circular A-21, Revised –F.S. 1012.945, the 12-Hour Law Primary source for the Board of Governors’ expenditure analysis

56 Loaning Effort

57 Why Does Effort Need to be Loaned? Many employees are involved in activities associated with account codes other than from where they were actually paid To report these activities properly, loans must be made from the pay records to the appropriate account codes

58 Loaning to Report Instruction Method evolved to capture teaching funded by non-state dollars—unrestricted sources only Fund 101, program 1100 except medical colleges, which are Fund 102, program 1100 If paid otherwise, effort must be loaned to appropriate account code in Fund 101 or 102, program 1100 The borrowed effort is then spread across the appropriate instructional activities.

59 Why Does Effort Need to be Loaned? To report effort of individuals who are not paid their entire salaries by the University but expend effort on UF activities beyond what UF does pay –Departments may request that the Office of Institutional Planning and Research create borrow records from special non-salary account codes (VA Hospital, Shands, UFRF, Inc., Courtesy Staff)

60 Why Does Effort Need to be Loaned? Effort may need to be loaned in order to give an instructor credit for classroom teaching An employee may be paid from an account code that is not a contract or grant but expends effort on sponsored research activities, thus effort should be loaned to the account code for the corresponding sponsored contract or grant project This is especially important when the employee’s cost sharing of salary is required by the contract or grant
