Effort Certification


The University uses the Huron ecrt system to certify the distribution of effort for all employees paid from federal and federal flow-through funds. The web-based system reduces human error, improves data accuracy, and provides the University with key audit capabilities. In addition, ecrt reduces the financial penalties the University could incur by facilitating increased compliance.
