The administrative burden placed on faculty and institutions performing research continues to be a major area of concern for the research enterprise at the federal and university level. Publications from the National Science Board (2014), National Academies of Sciences (2015) and the Federal Demonstration Partnership (Survey in 2005 and 2012) have reported or documented the extent in which the administrative burden placed on faculty can hinder the affordability and facilitation of science. One intent of the Uniform Guidance (2 CFR 200) was to address these burdens by streamlining policy requirements and focusing on research outcomes. This webinar will focus on the activities of a national cohort of Institutions focused on creating an internal control framework to efficiently meet the requirements of Uniform Guidance 200.430 Compensation – Personal Services which includes alternative methods for the after-the-fact review of compensation charges (alternatives to “effort reporting”).
- Provide you with a framework overview, examples of institutional implementations, Phase I research survey results, feedback from the audit community, current environment of institutions that have transitioned and the benefits of having a national standard.
- You will gain a better understanding of alternatives to effort reporting and an increased awareness of balancing compliance and audit risk strategies for successful internal controls processes strategies.
- You will acquire insights into the institutional decision-making process for alleviating your faculty's administrative burden.
