Research Administration Training and Education: December classes

Research Administration Training and Education is offering four classes in December 2018:

RATE Effort Certification

Tuesday, Dec. 4
1:30 to 3:30 p.m.
Center for Health & Healing 3171, room 1A

Examine the federal requirements that shape institutional policy and details of OHSU’s Effort Certification procedure, including reporting frequency and shared compliance. Effort Reporting, with its compensation indications, relates very closely to the Department of Health & Human Services (DHHS) Salary Cap. Lecture, case studies, planning strategies, and hands-on learning prepare you with great tools before diving into the task.

RATE InfoEd for submissions

Thursday, Dec. 6
8:30 a.m. to noon
BICC/Library Building, room 122

InfoEd’s Proposal Development module is required for preparing and submissions that go through the Office of Proposal and Award Management (OPAM). The electronic Proposed Project Questionnaire is completed within InfoEd for both and submissions.

RATE DHHS Salary Cap

Tuesday, Dec. 11
1:30 to 3:30 p.m.
Center for Health & Healing 3171, room 1A

Gain tools for navigating the complex process of budgeting for and managing salaries affected by the DHHS Salary Cap. How do you know if the course is right for you? The Salary cap applies to any OHSU employee working on DHHS sponsored awards who earns more than $189,600 (the current DHHS cap) as a 1.0 FTE base salary. If there are researchers in your department who fit these criteria, we highly recommend the course!

RATE Post-Award: Federal Grants Management

Tuesday, Dec. 18
1 to 4 p.m.
Center for Health & Healing 3171, room 1A

This course is specifically designed for administrative staff who manage the financial concerns of federal grants and contracts. Through analysis of OMB circulars, OHSU policies and forms using case studies, you will leave this course with the skills necessary to successfully manage the financial compliance of sponsored projects.

Enroll in any of these courses through Compass with your network login. More information on registration, times and locations can be found on the RATE home page. Please contact Terri Welsh with any questions.
