Effort Reporting


Employee Compensation Compliance (ECC) formally Effort Certification and Reporting Technology (ECRT)—eliminates the need for signing paper copies of your effort statement. The benefits of this tool include:

  • No paper forms to sign and route
  • Just a few clicks to complete your effort certification
  • Access your information anytime and anywhere you have Internet access—mobile devices too
  • View even more information about your effort and sponsored awards:
  • Detailed payroll transactions
    • The dollar amounts behind the effort percentages

    • Staff charging effort to your awards
    • The amount of effort you committed to each award
