Personal Services and Effort Reporting

Georgia Institute of Technology has developed a Personal Services Reporting training tutorial and certification that applies to all Georgia Tech employees working on sponsored research or related-support projects. These employees are required to login to our Institute training system and complete the twenty-minute online training module. To comply with GA Tech policy, it is expected that all applicable faculty, staff, and students complete the necessary training and certification requirements. To comply with federal funding authorities, all employees must be certified within 30 days of notification from Grants and Contracts so that our good standing with these funding agencies is not affected.
