This is a reminder that the certification deadline for the Spring and Summer 2012 quarters is 30 days from today, February 7, 2013. As of today, 40% of the reports have been certified. We encourage departments to continue to log into ERS to complete certifications. You can access your department’s effort reports in the Effort Reporting System.

Please remind your PIs and staff of the deadline. Principal Investigators are required to self-certify their own effort. All other effort reports can be certified by the Principal Investigator, the employee or an authorized certifier with first-hand knowledge of the employee’s effort.

ERS notifications are sent to employees that are assigned the Coordinator’s function in DACSS and to employees that subscribed through the ERS Listserv. To subscribe to this mailing list: Send an email to:

If you have outstanding effort reports from previous quarters, we ask that you continue to work on those too. For any questions, please contact ERS Support at

Thank You,
