The Grant and Contract Certification (GCCR) process is an alternative approach to the Faculty effort Certification (FEC) process which the federal government approved for certifying non-faculty effort. This certification, both faculty and non faculty, is a federal requirement. The BARS do not include the appropriate certification statement and were not part of the original agreement with the federal government. To certify on the BARS would depart from the federally approved use of the GCCR to certify effort for non faculty.
The GCCR pulls the PIs name from the FAS Budget Index. Check to see if it is spelled incorrectly there.
This is a blanket email that will go out to all PUC codes. If there is no appropriate activity on the budget, it will not appear on your report. For instance, if the only activity is faculty effort, the budget will not appear on the GCCR. The faculty will certify this effort on the FEC.
Object codes 0150 (Post Doctoral trainees) and 0190 (Pre-doctoral trainees) have been purposely excluded from the new GCCR. These individuals are not considered employees of the University. Their funding comes in the form of stipends, i.e., it does not reflect compensation for services rendered, therefore does not need to be reported as work on grants. They are receiving a living allowance (stipend) typically to pursue an educational or research objective.
To change an incorrect PUC, contact the Payroll Office at email@example.com. Follow the same procedure for PIs who are missing from your GCCRs.
It is most likely because there are no budgets currently assigned to the missing PI.Verify that the budget for which the PI is responsible for certifying has the correct PI EID and PI name in MyFinancial Desktop, Budget Profile.
The Grant and Contract Certification Report (GCCR) is required to be maintained in the home department of the Principal Investigator. Therefore, to determine compliance with the GCCR process MAA relies on the departmental downloads, i.e. if the GCCR has not been downloaded, it has not been certified. Downloading the GCCR removes the report from the overdue list.
Note, when there is a change in PI, the system will create a GCCR for the new PI. This may result in a duplication of a report for a period already certified by the original PI. In this case there is not need for the new PI to certify again. However downloading the GCCR will remove it from the overdue report.
