Conducting Effort Reporting

Effort reporting is a federally mandated process in which the funding allotted to a federally sponsored research project is certified as being reasonable in relation to the effort expended on that project.

In accordance with federal regulations, Rush University requires all researchers and staff who work on projects supported by federal agencies to verify that the time they have charged to these sponsored projects is accurate. This verification will be made on a timely basis by the principal investigator or an individual with firsthand knowledge of the PI’s research activities.

Verifications will be reported as an after-the-fact percentage of the overall research effort. All individuals involved in effort reporting should be aware that severe penalties and funding disallowances may result from inaccurate, incomplete or untimely effort reporting.
