Notification of change to future certification cycle
The effort reporting cycle covering the period of 3/1/2018-8/31/2018 will be modified based on the institutionally planned go-live date for Workday, the new system for human resources and payroll. As a result, the window for completing certification will begin earlier and be shortened from a 45-day window to a 40-day window. The 40‐day window will begin 09/10/2018 and end on 10/19/2018. The modified timeline is to ensure maximum completion prior to the cutover from HRMS to Workday. Please plan accordingly for the change.

The Office of Sponsored Projects (OSP) serves as the coordinating office for externally funded research and sponsored projects at The University of Texas at Austin. The goal of the OSP is to assist faculty and professional research staff in their efforts to secure and ensure proper stewardship of external funding. We do that by assisting research faculty and staff with the following: proposal review, authorization, and submission; award negotiations and acceptance; account management; close-out, reports, audits, collection; professional development and education; export control, and research compliance.
