disbursements an area where strong
oversight and continuous auditing
minimizes misuse. This year, our of-

The most significant change is that
faculty and Principal Investigators
will be asked to certify the accuracy
of an effort report, at the end of se-
mester, for themselves and those

It is the responsibility of each depart-
