The Office of Sponsored Programs' goal is to deliver high-quality services and expertise in an efficient and professional manner. We seek ways to improve the management complexities within the pre- and non-financial award cycle, while building relationships with the research community. 

Our mission is to continually improve UVA's overall technical and functional expertise in research administration.

Payroll Allocation Confirmation (PAC) System

Starting April 2023, the Payroll Allocation Confirmation (PAC) System, a Huron Employee Compensation Certification module customized for UVA, replaced Effort@. In the new system: 

  • Faculty can review and approve faculty salaries and wages distributed to sponsored and non-sponsored activities via Faculty Statements.
  • Clinical faculty can update additional fields for activities reportable for Medicare Cost Reporting.
  • Principal Investigators (PIs) can review and approve salaries and wages of non-faculty personnel charged to their grants.
  • The reporting cycles will continue to be semi-annual, with pre-review and certification periods, just like the Effort@ certification process.
  • If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact OSP Post Award Financial Compliance at
