An ePER is an Electronic Personnel Effort Report. These are certified online through the Effort Certification System (ePERs). Effort is defined as the amount of time spent by an employee on a particular activity during a certain period of time, expressed as a percentage of the total time worked by the employee during that same period. Certifying ePER is the process of verifying/confirming the work performed (e.g., effort). Read more about the CU Boulder ePERs Policy
