The new eCertification system supports a single consolidated review and certification process for managing sponsored project expenditures and cost sharing commitments.
- PIs can review and certify all sponsored project expenditures of any type online in one system
- Administrators with Task Manager authority can review all sponsored project expenditures of any type online in one system
- Drill down capabilities enhance access to expenditure information and supporting documentation
- Certification information and supporting documents can be centrally stored
January 22 - February 16, 2018: the period when Task Managers document their monthly review of fall quarter expenditures. You will receive an email notification with a link that will direct you to the system.
February 26 - March 23, 2018: the period when PIs review and certify fall quarter expenditures. You will receive an email notification with a link that will direct you to the system.
While we anticipate an easy transition to this intuitive system, rest assured that you’ll have support resources to ensure your success.
On January 26, 2018 sponsored Task Managers were emailed the BI 149 Report. The report is to help you transition to the new eCertification System. You and your PI are not to sign the 149 Report, but are required to review and certify in the eCertification System.
The BI 149 will not be sent to you in the future. OBI Reporting will still be available.
