Effort Reporting and Certification
Title 2 of the Code of Federal Regulations, Part 220, Appendix A, Section J.10. states that institutions providing compensation to employees under sponsored agreements must have a procedure for documenting and confirming the distribution of charges for personal services.
To comply with this regulation, ASU requires faculty and staff to complete an effort report if they are 1) receiving compensation from a sponsored program account, or 2) contributing time to a sponsored project (cost sharing). The reports are generated automatically and are available for review and certification in RamPort. Effort Reports must be completed within 30 days of receiving notice from the Sponsored Projects Office that the reports are ready for review and certification.
