SEEMLESS and Effort Reporting Process

Purdue University Effort Reporting Process 

The online SEEMLESS (Summer Employment and Effort Management Leading Efficiency through a Simple Solution) application replaces paper PARs.

  • Business offices and faculty will access SEEMLESS to view PARs.
  • Similar to today, the faculty must verify their effort. The business office will view and approve.
  • Once central office review and it is ‘certified.’ The PAR is locked.

How it works for Summer PAR period:

  1. Information from Summer Pay prepopulates the PAR
  2. Faculty must verify PARs
    • A PAR can be assigned to one or more faculty for review, but only one faculty can sign the PAR
  3. Business office and/or faculty can edit PARs:
    • New cost distribution items can be added/deleted
    • Comments can be added/edited
    • Edits automatically feed the summary
