Approval Flow (Graphical)

0

This is the visual graph of approvers and watchers. The graph begins on the left with the PI and ends on the right with the Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP). Directly under the PI node, is a node for the Preparer/Owners.

If there is an Application PI, that node is immediately to the right of the PI. If there are one or more Multiple PIs, they will follow the PI or the Application PI, if there is one. The Multiple PIs are displayed one below the other. Note that if the Multiple PI is a non-UW person, they will not appear on the approval flow.

The top line of nodes on the graphical version generally are the reviewers associated with the organization receiving funding. The order of other nodes is not fixed.

There is a Legend that defines what the colors of the nodes mean. The heavily outlined node on the graph indicates your location in terms of the overall Approval process.
