Once you have entered the required Return Reason, the Return Request button will be enabled. To cancel out of the dialog, use the Cancel link or the blue X in the upper, right corner.

When you return a request, the item will move to Returned status and will be read-only. An alert message will display at the top of the Request & Submit/Request Summary page with the date of the return and the reason. The following image shows an example of this.

You can return an action to OSP for changes as long as its status is other than Processed.

  • Admin Action Number or Funding Action Number
  • Current Status
  • Short Title
  • Principal Investigator
  • Sponsor
  • Budget Number
  • Budget Biennium
  • Current Location

The following image shows this dialog.

You must include comments when returning an action. They will display on the History & Comments page in SERA, and on the OSP Notes page in SPAERC.

Below the Comments field, the “Item will be assigned to” field displays the OSP person assigned.

When you click the Return to OSP button, the action will close and your tasklist will display. You can click the Cancel link to return to the action without making any changes.
