May 26 Project Update

We have begun the design process for completing Effort Certification Reporting. For those who don’t know, Effort Certification allows us to report to the federal government how the grants we receive are used to support salaries and wages for faculty/staff at Miami. We expect our first reporting cycle in the new system to begin with the Fall term beginning in December 2022 after the last payroll for the term.

The annual benefits signup is coming… The team is installing Ellucian’s most recent upgrades from March so that we can evaluate using the new functionality during our enrollment period.

Now that the target date for rolling out Registration (Nov. 21, 2022) is confirmed, the team is moving forward with the initial design of the functionality. In addition, the team is contracting with an outside vendor to do load testing to ensure that the volume of students registering is handled smoothly and efficiently.
