Staff and Faculty Effort
Reporting on Externally Sponsored Projects
Faculty effort is the time faculty spend on their university activities, including research, instruction, administration, service and clinical activity.
This policy sets forth conditions for the documentation of effort for faculty and professional staff who receive compensation, in whole or in part, through a grant or sponsored agreement, or who have committed personnel costs as part of cost sharing obligation on a grant or sponsored agreement.
There are two systems for certification:
- Faculty Effort Certification (eFEC). eFECS provides a suite of inter-related automated solutions for faculty effort certification and cost share documentation to support federal grant compliance requirements at the University of Washington. This certification is pulled from the payroll system and certifications happen twice a year.
- Grant and Contract Certification Report (GCCR). The GCCR is a report generated each quarter and shows non-faculty employees paid on sponsored projects. Principal Investigators are required to sign the GCCR reports for their grants. For questions, please contact Cindy Shirley in the Office of Research.
