Time and Effort Certifications under the Uniform Grant Guidance Update is brought to you by Lorman

Ensure your time and effort system meets the requirements of the Uniform Guidance.

Recipients of federal grant awards are required to maintain documentation (time and effort records) to support the personnel charges to federal awards. Failure to maintain proper time and effort records can result in the recovery of any unsupported personnel charges to federal awards. This topic will help you understand the requirements in the Uniform Grants Guidance (UGG) for documenting personnel charges. The material also explains the common problems with recipient time and effort tracking systems. Failing to have proper documentation for personnel charges is one of the most common errors recipients make in managing their federal awards. It has often led to large recoveries of federal funds. This information is critical so you can ensure your time and effort system meets the requirements of the Uniform Guidance.
