ERS Coordinator List

For assistance with effort reporting questions, click on one of the links below to find your ERS Coordinator.  The campuswide list is sorted by school/college, then by department.

Coordinators are responsible for facilitating the ERS certification process in their department. While ERS coordination duties will vary by department, typical duties include:

  • Staying knowledgeable about ERS and the certification process in order to provide technical support to PIs, faculty, and other certifiers.
  • Monitoring department effort reports to ensure all reports are certified by the deadline.
  • Following up after certification to make sure payroll adjustments are made in the Payroll Personnel System (PPS) as needed.
  • Following up after certification to make sure the Cost Share Tracking System (CSTS) is updated as needed. 
  • Watching for reports that are reopened or reissued. Recertification should be rare, as reports certified more than once indicate poor internal controls.
