Effort Reporting

Updates to reflect the ecrt upgrade coming soon

As a recipient of federal research funding, the University of Kansas is required to maintain a system by which the effort of faculty and staff is periodically certified as to the accuracy of the effort that is charged or assigned to sponsored projects. In accordance with OMB’s 2 C.F.R 200 (OMB Circular A-21, Section J.10, prior to 12/26/2014), the university is required to collect certification by an authorized party to confirm that work was performed and that salaries charged to the sponsored projects are reasonable in relation to the actual work performed by the individual. The university requires that this policy be applied consistently to every sponsored project regardless of the funding source.
