Effort Certification

The University of Massachusetts Dartmouth has implemented a web-based effort reporting
system called ECRT (Effort Certification and Reporting Technology).

ECRT will support and facilitate the annual time and effort reporting requirements of the federal government and the UMASS system.

For questions regarding ECRT please contact: Catherine Palmer, Financial Systems & Reporting Manager, 508-999-8965
