Electronic Faculty Effort and Cost Sharing

eFECS Cost Share Module launched - February 2009

The Electronic Faculty Effort & Cost Sharing (eFECS) System replaced the BGT mainframe as the University of Washington's cost sharing database in February, 2009.

Departments have access to an online inquiry screen that enables them to view and track cost sharing commitments. Access to the eFECS cost share module is managed via ASTRA. Your ASTRA authorizer for the Financial Desktop (MyFD) is also your ASTRA authorizer for eFECS.For more information about how to get or grant access to eFECS, please see below.
