Sponsored Projects Administration

Welcome to The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UT Health) effort reporting website. Effort Reporting is our means of providing assurance to sponsors that direct labor charges to, or cost shared on, sponsored projects are reasonable and accurately reflect the actual level of work performed.

ECC (Employee Compensation Compliance) is the on-line effort certification system used to facilitate UT Health’s effort reporting process. In addition, it can be used by departmental administrators to monitor payroll distributions.
