Overview of ECRT

The Research Foundation for SUNY has implemented an online effort reporting tool—Effort Certification and Reporting Technology (ECRT)—eliminating the need for signing paper copies of your effort statement.

The benefits of this new tool include:

  • No paper forms to sign and route
  • Just a few clicks to complete your effort certification
  • 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
  • Access your information anytime and anywhere you have Internet access—mobile devices too!
