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