Effort Reporting System (ERS)

Effort reporting is the method of certifying to the granting agencies that the effort required as a condition of the award has actually been completed.

Federal regulations require that any individual committing effort on a federal or federal flow-through contract or grant certify that the salary charged or cost shared by the institution is reasonable in relation to the effort expended on that project.
