If you are an employee receiving an Effort Report, you will automatically be granted access to certify your effort report as an option under Employee Self Service in the MyPack Portal. If you have not had an active employee record and have not received a paycheck since January 1st of the Fiscal Year being certified, you will not have access to Employee Self Service and therefore will not be able to certify your Effort Report. You should contact your TEARS Coordinator and sign a paper copy of your Effort Report. Once signed and returned, the Dept Head will certify on your behalf. To access the MyPack Portal and the TEARS System, you must have Internet access and a Unity ID and password. Access to Dean, Department Head, and Administrative/TEARS Coordinator security roles must be submitted through the Security Access Request (SAR) System.
