As a recipient of federal research funding, the University of Pittsburgh is required to maintain a system that allows for verification that direct labor charges to sponsored projects are accurate, timely and reflective of the actual level of work performed.
Employee Compensation Compliance (ECC) is a web-based application that facilitates the electronic certification of effort on federally sponsored projects. ECC integrates data from the University’s PRISM General Ledger, Payroll, Salaried Personnel Activity Report (SPAR), and Research Proposal and Accounting (RPA) applications to enhance compliance management while significantly reducing the administrative burden of the effort certification process.
