Effort Reporting Changes

Effort Reporting Changes

Under university policy, a change in an employee's plan of 5% or more is significant, and must be processed in the university system to reflect the new effort distribution. These adjustments must be submitted to Human Resources Records Information Services (HRRIS) within a reasonable time that is consistent with the University's Cost Transfer Policy. HRRIS can be contacted at (734) 764-9250 or http://www.hr.umich.edu/hrris/.

The University Effort Reporting Policy gives units the flexibility to be more restrictive and have a threshold of lower than 5 percent if the unit chooses. This recognizes the fact that business varies across campus. Please check with your unit administrator to find out your unit's threshold.

Changes to Effort Certification Reports

If the report is incorrect, changes must be made in the Human Resources Management System (HRMS), and a new Effort Certification Report must be signed electronically by the employee. If the individual is no longer employed by the university, the employee must sign an As Needed Report through Wolverine access. As Needed Report instructions can be found at https://maislinc.umich.edu/mais/pdf/HR_UAW_effortcertificationreport_QR.pdf.

Please note: Hand written changes will not be accepted on a signed Effort Certification Report.

Changes for Effort Certification Reports already submitted/previous periods

If effort is changed for a period already certified then (in addition to the steps above) the employee must re-certify electronically through Wolverine Access Employee Business. If the individual is no longer employed by the University, the employee must sign an As Needed Report through Wolverine Access. As Needed Report instructions can be found at https://maislinc.umich.edu/mais/pdf/HR_UAW_effortcertificationreport_QR.pdf.
