Where to Get Help

All individuals required to certify effort have a designated effort coordinator.  The effort coordinator can answer your questions, monitor certification activity, and follow up with any late certification issues.  The name and contact information of your effort coordinator appears on your effort statement.  If you are not sure who your effort coordinator is, please contact your department administrator or your Dean’s office.  You can also contact the Effort Reporting Team at or call (713) 500-3392.
