Effort Certification at KU

KU applies Uniform Guidance requirements to all sponsored projects, regardless of the funding source. Therefore, effort must be certified for all individuals who receive salary support from a sponsored project or who expend effort on a sponsored project (even if they do not receive salary support from the sponsor).

To ensure all certification can be completed electronically and that records of effort certification are available, ecrt® has been implemented.
