Faculty and staff who are paid on sponsored projects, or companion cost share accounts, must certify the accuracy of this time (i.e., effort) using the online Effort Certification and Reporting Technology (ECRT) system.

  • The Office of Information Technology provides technical support to the Sponsored Projects Administration (SPA).
  • Sponsored Projects Administration (SPA) provides support to users of the system.

Getting Started

For support information, see the Effort Reporting page on the SPA (Sponsored Projects Administration) site.
