Date TBD: CRIS University: Introduction to CRIS Workshop

Dates: TBD
Description:  Due to concerns regarding COVID-19 (coronavirus) and universities suspending non-essential travel, Maximus will be cancelling our CRIS University: Introduction to CRIS Workshop that was scheduled to be held from Tuesday, May 12 through Thursday, May 14, 2020. Maximus will announce the rescheduled dates of the workshop at a later time. This introductory workshop provided university professionals who prepare F&A rate proposals with an overview of CRIS. In this workshop, participants will:

-    Gain a basic familiarity with the CRIS application on a laptop in our workshop computer lab, under the direction of Maximus staff.
-    Complete a CRIS model, using data for a simulated university.
-    Calculate an F&A rate for the modeled university and generated reports for a rate proposal.

CRIS is compliant with Uniform Guidance 2 CFR PART 200. Participants step through the CRIS process of calculating the Utility Cost Adjustment, which may increase your Organized Research F&A rate by up to 1.3 points. Workshop instructors will include Ms. Anne Feuerborn, Director, and Ms. Deb Carmel, Senior Consultant. CRIS University Workshop attendees will receive 14 CPE credits for attending all sessions.
