New IFR Process - Effective Monday, March 3rd, 2014
Effective March 3rd, 2014 SPS will implement a new IFR process that will no longer require a Change of Effort Form. SPS will continue to load effort when new accounts are established or when new money is received, however SPS will only seek Dean's approval for reductions of effort that are 25% or greater.
