February 22, 2024 SAGE Suite Release Notes


Award Setup Requests

Help Text Added for Supporting Attachments

Award Setup Requests (ASRs) now provide the following guidance in the Supporting Attachments section: “Please upload all attachments that support your request. Common examples of supporting attachments include correspondence with the sponsor, compliance protocols or approvals, agreement documents and notices of award, and copies of reports.

Award Setup Requests (OSP & GCA only)

Budget Amounts Display by Workday Ledger, Object Class, and Spend Category

OSP and GCA can now see a breakdown of the ASR’s linked budget amounts by the categories needed for Workday plan setup. The amounts are aggregated by Ledger, Object Class, and Spend Category for each award line and period. This feature allows GCA to more easily enter the amounts needed for the Workday plan, and supports the end of February budget integration release by allowing GCA to preview the amounts that will flow to Workday.

This view is also intended to be made available to campus via SAGE in the future.

Modification Requests

Start/End Date Labels and Help Text Updates

The Modification Request Form labels in the General Information section have been updated to clarify the dates GCA is requesting.

  • Current Authorized Spending Start/End Date has been updated to Award Line(s) / Budget Period Start/End Date

Below the dates, the following help text displays for further clarification: “If the sponsor requires financial reports/invoices per budget period, provide the funded period’s start date for new Award Line(s) to be set up in Workday. For a single report/invoice at the end of all budget periods, use the Award Setup Request start date that established the award unless your department/unit prefers new annual Award Line(s) and SAGE Budget periods.

SAGE Budget

SAGE Budget Alert & Validation for 03-62 (subaward) Line Entries

As an added reminder, SAGE Budget now displays an alert that the 03-62 (subaward) line entry is for the proposal budget only. Additionally, Award Setup Requests that include 03-62 as a line entry will be blocked from submission, and users will be reminded to instead create a subaward worksheet.

Fix: “Do Not Round” budget setting resulting in unexpected rounding

An issue has been fixed where the “Do Not Round” with 0 decimals setting selection was rounding up instead of truncating at the decimal level set by the users.

Fix: Some employee benefits not defaulting for staff entries

An issue has been fixed where some employee benefits were not defaulting in the SAGE Budget personnel section, due to the change from Job Classification to Job Family within Workday. The employee selection now pulls from the new Workday Job Family values.

SAGE Central: Admin Actions (OSP)

Fix: Cost Center changes resulting in multiple codes displayed

An issue has been fixed where changes to the Cost Center Code in an Admin Action were saving multiple times, causing an unexpected display of information.

Fix: Incorrect sponsor saved on add/change

An issue has been fixed where the incorrect sponsor displayed in the Admin Action after changing or adding a sponsor.
