Documents to be Submitted to Sponsor
In this section, upload and attach the documents that will ultimately be submitted to the sponsor. Attaching them to the eGC1 makes them available online to all authorized approvers, including OSP.
Be sure to organize the documents according to the sponsor’s specifications. Use the PDF file format unless the sponsor indicates otherwise.
If there are pages that OSP needs to sign, place those pages in a separate PDF and upload the file in this section.
You can attach a draft version and update it with the final version before indicating that your application is “ready to submit.”
Internal Documents for OSP
In this section, you should attach the documents that OSP needs for compliance reasons or for a better understanding of the information with the grant application. OSP will not submit these documents to the sponsor. An example is the Cost Share Addendum.
If both OSP and your department reviewers need to view these internal documents, upload them here. Any reviewer can see all of the attached documents regardless of which section they are in.
Internal Documents for Dept/School/College
In this section, you should upload and attach the documents for your reviewers other than OSP.
Any reviewer can see all of the attached documents regardless of which section they are in.
Connected Budget Documents
The Connected Budget Data section links to the current versions of your connected budget and sub budgets. You will see the connected budget and sub budgets, with the budget number, budget type, budget name, and Budget Edit Number. To display a budget in Microsoft Excel, click the budget link.
When your eGC1 and budget are in Composing, Withdrawn, or Returned status, you can modify the data in the budget. The Budget Edit Number will change when you make modifications to the parent budget or any attached sub budgets. When your eGC1 and budget are in Routing or In OSP status, you cannot edit the budget unless you withdraw the eGC1 or OSP returns it.
Once OSP has approved the eGC1, you can edit the linked budget. When you link a budget period to an eGC1, you cannot link it to another eGC1. You can link the budget’s future periods to another eGC1. This allows you to revise the approved budget period and update future periods to reflect changes in funding.
Uploaded by OSP
These documents are uploaded by OSP in support of, or in reference to, this application. You can view the documents from within the eGC1. If the eGC1 is in Returned status, you can update an attachment, but you cannot delete it.
You can view award and administrative documents associated with your application from the Related Attachments section. This includes signed concurrence letters, notification documents from sponsor, agreements, extension approvals, and subaward documents.
Please note that you cannot view compliance documents, and significant financial interest (SFI) documents from Related Attachments.
Note: The Related Attachments list may not include some non-award agreements (NAA). This happens when OSP processes the NAA while the related eGC1 is still in Composing status. If you need to view an NAA that is not available, please contact OSP by email to request the file.
The following information is displayed for each file.
|As entered by the OSP administrator. Common descriptions may include:
|The name of the attached file.
|The type of item and the item number to which the file is attached. Common item types include Funding Actions (FA), Pre-award notifications (PAN), Post Award Changes (PAC), and Subawards (SC).
|The current version of the file, indicating whether the file was updated.
|As indicated by the OSP administrator who processed it. File types included are:
|The date and time the document was attached to the source item. Documents display in reverse chronological order.
System Generated Budget Snapshots (Historical)
The System Generated Budget Snapshots (Historical) section is only displayed for eGC1s with budgets associated or disassociated before April 20, 2011. SAGE previously attached snapshots of the budget as it was when it was associated with or disassociated from an eGC1. To view the snapshots in Microsoft Excel, click the View link. You cannot remove these documents. The system will not generate new snapshots.
Tip: To take advantage of the new budgeting versioning and integration features, disassociate the associated budget from the eGC1, and then connect your budget. You will see more detailed information in Budget History and be able to view your most current budget information in the eGC1.
When you connect an older budget, the Budget Edit Numbers will start with “1” regardless of how many edits you made before April 20, 2011.
