Detailed Instructions, Detailed Question Explanations, and a Sample Form are available for reference.

Step 1 – you will receive an email with departments/accounts selected for annual certification that directs you to complete the certification form, or you will receive an email that includes a link to the certification form because one was certified in the prior year.

Step 2 – The approver for the selected department must certify the responses for the reported activity.

Step 3 – Auxiliary Accounting will review the submission and contact you for any additional information. You will receive a notification email with a UBI determination for the fiscal year.

  • If your activity is not subject to UBI, an email notification of the determination will be sent to you for your records and no further action is necessary.
  • If your activity may be subject to UBI, an email notification will be sent to you to complete an additional Financial Statement for the activity.
