As part of a larger effort to improve usability and content of the eGC1 Compliance page, this release makes a number of alterations to better focus the Compliance page on non-fiscal compliance questions. This was accomplished by either removing questions or relocating them to more intuitive sections of the eGC1.
There are more changes coming to the Compliance page in a later release that will build upon these enhancements.

|FG-2 Conducted off campus||Replaced by Activity Locations section|

New Activity Locations Page
A new page has been added to the eGC1 that centralizes details related to the location of research activities in a proposal.
This page includes relocated questions, as well as more detailed tracking on each location where UW work will take place. The sections on this page are:
- Includes identification of each location where UW research activities are taking place along with details helpful for budgeting and F&A rate determination.
- The Location Search integrates with the UW’s space tracking system GeoSIMS, allowing you to partially enter a facility name, address or facility code and populate the eGC1 with the data for that location.
- You can also manually enter locations not found in GeoSIMS.
- Includes the “construction or renovation” question formerly on the Compliance page, along with approval details when answered ‘Yes’.
- Includes the international involvement question and country identification formerly on the Details page. Country is now sourced from the more comprehensive international standard ISO 3166.
This new page introduces an updated, intuitive and more modern experience for SAGE. Based on feedback from users, we will be incrementally updating SAGE to new design standards with each new release.
Fiscal Compliance Combined with Budget
The existing FG-1, FG-3, and FG-7 compliance questions related to fiscal compliance have been relocated to the top of the Budget page (now rebranded “Budget & Fiscal Compliance”), along with the useful explanations when ‘Yes’ is selected.
Details Page Updates
The existing NG-3 “originating sponsor” compliance question has been relocated to the Details page directly below the Sponsor selection.
The international involvement question has been relocated to the Activity Locations page.
PI, Personnel, & Organizations Page Updates
The existing FG-8 Compliance question on interdisciplinary facilities, service centers, etc. has been relocated to the PI, Personnel, & Organizations page. In a previous release, the FG-9 “other organizational reviewers” question was relocated to this page as well. With these two changes, you can now better manage your eGC1 approvals in one location.
SAGE Toolbar Update
The “reset form” icon on the upper SAGE toolbar has been removed. Removal of this rarely used feature will allow the application design to progress to more modern standards.
SPAERC: Intellectual Property Questions Added to FA/PAC/NAA
A new question has been added to the FAs, PACs, and NAAs in SPAERC for OSP post-award administrators to indicate when an agreement includes an upfront exclusive commercial license or ownership over the project’s intellectual property. CoMotion will receive notification when these are marked YES in order to get a jump start on IP negotiation.
SPAERC: BUG FIX – Internal OSP Notes no longer display in SAGE Subawards “Latest Update”
An issue that was causing internal OSP notes for subawards to display in SAGE under “Latest Update” for requests in process has been resolved. The “Latest Update” will now only display the most recent status update and any accompanying comments to/from campus and OSP.
