The personnel activity reporting system is OSU’s method of verifying employee effort on sponsored awards.  One activity report is generated for each award.

OSU processes personnel activity reports on a calendar quarter basis. The PI reviews and certifies their effort, and may also be involved in certifying effort for student employees working on his/her award. 

The OMB Circulars 2 CFR Part 200 and A-110 and various sections of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) prescribe the administrative systems requirements and costing practices for Institutions of Higher Education as they relate to federal assistance programs and federal procurement programs.
