System Overview
eCRT is a web-based technology that guides certifiers and administrators through the various aspects of the effort reporting and certification process.  All employees that work on a sponsored project (compensated or not compensated) must have their time certified.  For additional information on procedures of certifying effort, please see Office of Research & Commercialization’s Management Procedures published on their website.

Within approximately thirty calendar days of the end of each semester, the Office of Research and Commercialization (ORC) will open ECRT for certification.  Self-Certifies will have a 30 day window to complete their certification. ORC publishes a new ECRT Certification Calendar each semester for the current certification period. For the most recent deadlines, please visit ORC’s Effort Reporting webpage and follow the link to the Effort Certification Period. For a list of eCRT Effort Periods, click here.
