Welcome to the HLCRA Research Administration website, which provides current research administration information for faculty and staff at the Harvard Medical School, the Harvard School of Dental Medicine and the Harvard School of Public Health.
EFFORT REPORTING – ecrt
New Requirement for Salary Journal Entries
Effective immediately, salary journals affecting sponsored accounts must include the “Period of Work Performed” (PWP) for all lines (sponsored and non-sponsored) associated with an individual HUID for the total amount being moved.
The requirement to include the Period of Work Performed on all lines will address several data issues in the ecrt Effort Reporting system. Journals without the PWP on all lines will need to be reversed and re-posted. Please refer to the job aid, “Creating and Posting Payroll Journals” for assistance completing journals to include the PWP.
Please address any questions or concerns to the ecrt support team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Harvard University has deployed the web-based ecrt (Effort Certification Reporting Technology) system to serve as the new tool to facilitate the effort certification and reporting process. Please go to the Office for Sponsored Programs/Effort Reporting web page for additional resources.
