Suggested Activities for Research Staff During COVID-19
Sometimes we may feel stuck under the circumstances caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, but they also provide time for us to focus on tasks outside of our “business as usual.” A list of suggested activities for research staff during the COVID-19 assignment to remote work is available to help those experiencing a hard time identifying productive remote work activities during the ramp down of research labs, clinical research activities, and the depopulation of staff from CHOP research activities.
In general, if any of the special projects outlined in this list were completed in furtherance of the aims of a funded research project, it is allowed to be charged to the grant/contract/internal research account. If the activity is too generalized to be beneficial on a specific project, it should be charged to the employee’s home cost center or the COVID-19 salary support fund.
Please work with your research business manager on ensuring that the accurate effort is reflected in CHOP financial systems, or speak with your HR business partner for help determining whether the employee’s home cost center or the COVID-19 salary support option is appropriate.
