March 3 and 17, 2010 RAF Special

The Office of Extramural Fund Management is offering a training session on Cost Transfers to introduce the new Payroll Expense Transfer system and to review procedures for justifying and approving late transfers of both Payroll and Non-Payroll expenses. We will review important federal regulations and UCLA policies related to cost transfers, and address roles and responsibilities from a user and reviewer perspective. EFM will be joined by representatives from both Campus Payroll and General Accounting to assist in the presentation.

All research fund management staff are strongly encouraged to attend one of these sessions to learn about important changes to procedures and requirements for processing cost transfers. Payroll Time Reporting staff are invited to attend as well. The class will be held on March 3, from 1:30 to 3:30, and again on March 17, from 1:30 to 3:30. Both classes will be held at the Louis Jolyon West Auditorium, Room C8-183 in the Semel Institute.

Handout is available: Cost Transfer Handout
