Reduction or Removal of Effort Used to Meet Cost Share
This directive establishes the proper methods of reducing or removing effort used to meet cost share. This change does not need to be communicated to the sponsor unless the individual is Senior/Key Personnel, or the request is intended to reduce the overall required cost share commitment.
Commitment Guidance is a hands-on guide to assist departments with all aspects of effort commitments.

- In UFIRST the department should process a modification to reduce or remove this individual’s effort
