The following message is sent on behalf of Financial Reporting & Accounting Services.


Good afternoon,


Financial & Cost Accounting Services has created a new Payroll Cost Transfer Request Justification Form, which should be used for all bi-weekly hourly wage cost transfers going forward.  The new form includes a section for an official signature by an individual with suitable means of certification of the hourly wages being moved onto sponsored projects or between sponsored projects.  This will eliminate the need to type out a certifying statement on the wage detail pages that have been required in the past. 


This new form should also be used for any Additional Payment cost transfers, however, the hourly wage effort certification section can be skipped since that effort will continue to be certified on an annual basis in the Effort Reporting System in the fall.


A copy of the form is attached and it can be also be accessed under the forms section the Cost Transfer webpage.  However, please note that in order for the electronic signature lines to work the form must be downloaded and opened in Adobe.


Please contact Financial & Cost Accounting Services with any questions. 


Thank you,



Dawn Caffrey
