It is essential that the salary distribution reported on the FEC be consistent with actual effort performed. When the salary distribution reported on the FEC reflects a material difference from the actual effort distribution, a salary transfer should be submitted to reflect the change. In addition, OPUS distributions should be reviewed and corrected if necessary to ensure that current and future distributions reflect the correct allocation of effort. When a salary transfer for a faculty member is processed prior to certification the change will display on the electronic FEC the following business day. Once the FEC is certified it cannot be changed. If there are changes required it will need to be recertified. This will require the FEC to be printed and a modification to the salary source section of the FEC form prior to recertification and submission to Management Accounting and Analysis (MAA) (See GIM 35).
