As recipents of external funding from both federal and other sponsors, Manhattan College must comply with numerous rules and regulations disseminated by the federal government and sponsors. The federal Office of Management and Budget (OMB) sets forth broad policies governing grant and contract financial administration.
OMB Circular A-21, Section J.10 outlines acceptable methods for supporting charges related to compensation for personal services on federal grants and contracts (effort certification). Effort certification provides support for salaries charged to sponsored programs, and documents that effort commitments were met.
At Manhattan College, the Primary Investigator (PI), must complete and sign the effort form. The PI is then responsible for sending the completed form to the Grants Administration Office, where it will be approved and then forwarded to the Grants Accounting/Payroll Office. Please use the form below.

Indirect costs, also known as facilities and administrative costs (F&A costs), are the institutional or infrastructure costs of managing and running programs that cannot be directly attributed to a program or activity.
