ECRT Update - Certification Period

As you know the ECRT Certification Period began on August 24, 2009. From the emails, telephone calls, and questions that have been received by the Office of Sponsored Programs we realize that many of you have been in ECRT. We appreciate your promptness in reviewing the Effort Cards.

The Certification Period is set to close on Friday, September 18, 2009. Please continue to work with the faculty and staff that are required to certify their effort over the next several week in order to meet the deadline. This goal is important for both institutional reasons and to meet requirements set forth in federal regulatory guidance. Please note, if the Effort Card(s) is not processed (complete status) by September 14, 2009, the Certifiers will receive a Reminder email from ECRT informing them that they need to certify their effort. Two more reminder emails will be sent out by ECRT to the Certifier: September 21st and September 25th. ECRT will also send out, to the Primary Effort Coordinator, the reminder emails with a list of Certifiers that still need to certify.

If you have experienced problems with ECRT, we appreciate your patience while the issues are resolved. Thanks for your assistance as we go through this process and as always we ask that you first refer to your training materials for ECRT questions. If your questions aren't answered, please email us.
