Effort reporting is a process mandated by the federal government to verify that direct labor charges to, or cost shared on, sponsored projects are accurate, timely, and reflect the actual level of work performed. Effort is the portion of time spent on a particular activity, expressed as a percentage of the individual's total activity for the university.
