Certification documents are electronic documents created by the Time and Effort System to represent effort for an individual, for a certification period.
In the Time and Effort System, a certification document is created for each unique occurrence of:
- Person (UIN)
- Pay Unit Type (monthly or hourly)
Certification documents are only created when an employee works on an account or project that requires certification. Certification documents are not created for employees that work on other account and project types.
In most instances, this will result in a single certification document being created each certification period for each qualifying employee. However, if the employee works in multiple positions or has multiple pay unit types, more than one certification document will created for the employee in the given period.
Certification documents are uniquely identified by certification document number, and approvals and workflow all occur at the document level. All actions that change the status of a certification document are logged and tracked in the document action log.
