Effort Reporting

Faculty and Staff Effort Reporting

The University of Iowa Web-based Personnel Activity Report (PAR) is used to identify how faculty and selected staff effort is distributed to a broad variety of activities.  Federal guidelines and Board of Regents directives govern who is surveyed, how frequently they are surveyed, allowable variances between federal salary and federal effort, and the time frame in which surveys must be distributed and completed.  PARs are used to certify individual effort on federally sponsored grants and contracts.  Data retrieved from effort reports is also compiled, analyzed and used to prepare summary reports for the State Board of Regents, central, collegiate and departmental administrators.
