Effort Coordinator Training

2 CFR 200 (Uniform Guidance) requires that KU have internal controls in place to ensure time expended on sponsored projects is certified.

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). 

KU is implementing ecrt ® to ensure all certification can be completed electronically and that records of effort certification is available.
