Effort Reporting at UTHealth
Effort reporting is a process mandated by the federal government to verify that direct labor charges to, or cost shared on, sponsored projects are accurate, timely, and reflect the actual level of work performed.
What is ECRT?
Effort Certification and Reporting Technology (ECRT) is a web-based system that integrates financial, payroll, and research administrative functions and is designed to enhance compliance management, improve financial information for academic units through comprehensive reporting, and significantly reduce the administrative burden of the effort reporting process.
Note: ECRT is available 24/7 from any computer with an Internet connection.
If you have questions about the effort certification process, or suggestions for additional information you would like to see on this website, please contact the effort helpdesk at 713.500.3392 or via e-mail at email@example.com
