100% Effort Charged to Federal Awards
RIT faculty charging 100% effort to federal awards only, for the entire 2.5 months, are required to complete the Plan of Work Summer 2012 Form. This form will provide a summary of the planned activities related to each federal award and document his/her understanding of the regulatory requirements when charging 100% effort to federal awards for the entire summer quarter. The form is reviewed and approved by the faculty member’s department head/center director and dean to assure that, if other activities required of the faculty member reduce the available effort that would be devoted to sponsored activities, he/she will reduce proportionally the percentage of effort charged to federal source(s) of funds.
