Payroll Topics

Faculty Effort Certification is a process the University of Washington uses to document the time spent on University activities. As required by federal guidelines, individual activities are displayed as a percentage of total activity.

Grant and Contract Certification Reports (GCCR) represent the documentation the University of Washington utilizes to certify the reasonableness of salaries and wages charged to sponsored projects.

NIH Salary Cap : The National Institutes of Health (NIH), the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), and the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) have historically restricted the amount of direct salary an individual can earn from a NIH, SAMHSA, or AHRQ grant or contract.

Salary Encumbrances: Salaries are encumbered on grants and contracts to assist departments in planning expenditures during the life of a grant or contract.
