Effort Reporting

What Is It?

Effort must be estimated, reported and certified for all individuals who receive salary support from a sponsored project, or who expend committed effort on a sponsored project regardless of receiving salary support from the sponsor. Effort Reporting is our means of providing assurance to sponsors that:

  1. Salaries charged to sponsored projects are reasonable in relation to the work performed, and
  2. Faculty and staff have met their commitments to sponsored projects

What Do I Need to Do?

If you need assistance in calculating the effort you will be committing to a sponsored project, or if you would like to understand the post-award effort reporting process, please see the documents linked in the buttons, below:
