The Effort Reporting System went live on October 5, 2007. ERS replaces the old paper PAR process. This system is Web-based and works with most browsers (i.e. Internet Explorer, Firefox, Netscape). The system generates effort reports on a quarterly or semester basis for users who have effort on sponsored awards or require certification for Medicare purposes. This is a paperless system that utilizes email to notify when reports are ready to be pre-reviewed, certified and post-reviewed.
Users can gain access to the system by logging on with their AccessNet user ID and password. The system can be accessed through the link above, via a link in the Temple portal or by typing in the following Web address in your browser: http://ers.temple.edu
