Effort Reporting

Effort reporting is the federally-mandated process by which the salary charged to a sponsored project is certified as being reasonable in relation to the effort expended on that project.  Effort is the portion of time spent on a particular activity, expressed as a percentage of the individual's total activity for the university.  Effort Reporting is our means of providing assurance to sponsors that salaries charged to sponsored projects are reasonable in relation to the work performed and faculty and staff have met their commitments to sponsored projects. 

UTMB uses the web-based system Effort Certification and Reporting Technology (ECRT) to meet the federal mandate. ECRT integrates financial, payroll, and research administrative functions and is designed to enhance compliance management, improve financial information for academic units through comprehensive reporting.

PIs are required to certify their sponsored effort and that of their support staff who work on their project(s) quarterly.

If you have questions concerning ECRT, please email ecrt.help@utmb.edu.
