If someone voluntarily works on a sponsored project and the individual was not included in the proposal, is it necessary to certify the effort?

  • No. Office of Management & Budget (OMB) issued a clarification in January, 2001 which specified that voluntary uncommitted cost sharing should be treated differently than the committed effort and should not be included in the organized research base for computing the Facilities & Administration (F&A) rate.
