The grant manager and the financial analyst should review all uncertified salary for correct accounts before an award closes. Once the award closes, journal entries will fail to post to closed subactivities. Since faculty only certify once per year and staff certify quarterly, it may be many months before reviews related to certification occur.

Department staff should work with their tub payroll groups to identify new funding sources and to ensure that salaries and wage to not post to the award for periods after the end date of the period of performance.
