Susan G. Komen is moving to proposalCENTRAL

Posted on March 28, 2012 at 8:56am


Susan G. Komen is implementing an exciting change to the management of your Komen research grant.  Over the past few months, Komen has been transitioning research grants management from the existing Komen Grants Management System (KGMS) to proposalCENTRAL.  Effective Monday, March 26, 2012, all tasks related to active Komen research grants, including ongoing administration, change requests and annual reporting, will be managed by Komen exclusively through proposalCENTRAL. 

Starting on April 9, 2012, Komen will utilize proposalCENTRAL to send reminders about due dates; receive, review and approve progress and financial reports; approve and track payments; receive and review change requests; and handle other grant management tasks.  Grants management in proposalCENTRAL will allow for simpler submission of progress reports, financial reports, and change requests.  Accordingly, Komen will be able to process your requests in a timelier manner.

Beginning Monday, March 26, 2012, active Komen Principal Investigators, Co-Principal Investigators, their institution signatories and financial officers that are on record with Komen, will be able to access proposalCENTRAL as follows:

  1. The URL for proposalCENTRAL is https://proposalcentral.altum.com/ProposalCentral/Authentication/Login.aspx
  2. Every Komen Grantee has a proposalCENTRAL login username (e-mail address) and password.  If you have forgotten your password, simply click on the “Forgot Password” link (https://proposalcentral.altum.com/ProposalCentral/
    ) on the Login page and proposalCENTRAL will send it to you via email.  If your username (e-mail address) does not work or is incorrect, please contact proposalCENTRAL for assistance at the phone or email address indicated below.
  3. After logging into the system, you may navigate and locate your grant(s).  To access your grant record(s) and details, click the blue hyperlinked Award ID on the far left column.
  4. Additional information is available under each grant record.  Please note, Komen will NOT utilize the Budget functionality in proposalCENTRAL at this time and the Budget page will remain blank within your grant record(s).
  5. To contact your Komen Science Manager or Komen Grants Administrator, simply click on the Contact & User Access hyperlink on your grant record.  The names of both your Komen Science Manager and Komen Grants Administrator are listed, along with their email addresses and direct phone number.  If you are unable to login to the system and unsure of your Komen Science Manager or Komen Grants Administrator’s information, please feel free to call or email the Komen helpdesk at the email or address indicated below.
  6. Finally, your account access to KGMS will be disabled on Monday, April 9, 2012.  Please rest assured that nothing is being deleted within KGMS and we have moved all pertinent information to proposalCENTRAL from KGMS.  However, if you have any questions or concerns regarding specifics, please contact your Komen Science Manager or Komen Grants Administrator.

Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns.
