Effort Certification and Reporting Technology (ECRT) is Duke University's, non-SAP, web-based real-time effort reporting.

Duke University deployed the ECRT system to serve as the new tool to facilitate the institution's effort reporting and certification requirement. The ECRT system is designed to comply with the provisions of this institution's effort reporting policies, federal policy OMB Circular A-21 Section J.10, and other relevant Sponsor's policies that govern the need to provide certification of an individual's 100% effort. The ECRT system uses a guided process to walk both the Certifier and the Effort Coordinator through the steps to complete the Certifier's Effort Certification Card(s).

Questions or comments regarding the ECRT system can be sent to ecrt-support at or review the website.
