Dear Research Community,
The Effort Reporting System (ERS) is now open and ready for AY18 certifications to be completed. Effort is the time spent on all university activities. The ERS is designed to document effort actually expended by individuals on each sponsored award during AY18 (8/16/17 – 8/15/18) and reconcile effort committed in award document(s). This effort can be paid directly by the award and/or other funding sources (i.e. cost shared) to ensure effort commitments are met.
