Effort Certification (EC)
The Effort Certification module uses a batch process to automate the creation of effort certification reports (also referred to as effort reports). These reports certify the percentage of effort an employee worked on a particular project. Each employee identified as being funded by or cost-shared on a sponsored agreement has an effort certification report generated by a batch process. Each report routes for approval and may be modified to correct the distribution of effort. After being fully approved, an effort certification report generates Salary Expense Transfer documents to align the Labor Ledger and General Ledger with the newly certified effort.
