Effort Reporting & ECRT Training

Federal regulations require that the University document and certify how effort and salary are spent in support of federally funded projects. July 2009, the effort certification process moved from a paper-based system to a web-based system.

The system is known as ECRT (Effort Certification & Reporting Technology) and is used to certify, approve, and track/report the effort provided by Faculty and monthly staff.

Those who must certify their effort are known as Certifiers and will use ECRT to certify where their time is spent. Effort Coordinators will use ECRT to track and approve the effort certification for certifiers in their department.

The following training is available to Certifiers and Effort Coordinators at Duke:
