New Features in SAGE

Preliminary Benefit Rates are now available to SAGE users.

GIM 3 has been updated to allow Sage Budget preparers to choose between using current benefit rates or preliminary benefit rates for future budgeting.

Users will also be able to look up rates within the revised GIM to view current and future rates as they become available.

SAGE Budget will use the correct rate based on the period start date when using current and preliminary rates or current-only rates

Budget preparers can use a global update feature to update their budgets quickly when preliminary rates become available.

The period entry page for a given person will indicate whether the rate is current or preliminary for that period.

An ASTRA information page will display instead of an error message.

When people attempt to log in to SAGE without the required ASTRA role, SAGE will display a list of people in their unit who can authorize access to SAGE. Users will be able to choose an authorizer and send him or her a message to request access to SAGE.

Designated Subcontract Actions (SA) attachments are viewable in SAGE.

SAGE will display Subcontracts Actions (SA) attachments in the Related Documents section of the Attached Documents page on the eGC1 if the SA is in Active or Closed-Out status and if the type of attachment is not a To/From Communication.

EH&S has a new compliance question: "Will the project involve scientific diving?"

Anyone diving under the University of Washington's auspices must have current certification as a University of Washington Scientific Diver and adhere to the standards set forth in the UW's Diving Safety Manual. EH&S will contact you to assist in meeting Diving Safety Program requirements prior to diving.
