UTEP has joined a UT System sponsored software application for effort certification. The Effort Certification & Reporting Technology (ECRT)
system is a web-based system which serves to facilitate the effort certification and reporting process. The University's previous paper-based ((Personnel Effort Reporting System (PERS)), will no longer be used by individuals that are required to certify their and other's research effort.
The ECRT system is designed to help you comply with the provisions of this institution's effort reporting policies, UT System policy, federal policy OMB Circular A-21 section J.10., NIH Salary Limitation on Grants, and other relevant agency policies that govern the need to provide certification of an individual's effort pursuant to his/her sponsored and non-sponsored programs.
