Place an Application or Action on Hold

You can add holds to Applications, Funding Actions, or any type of Admin Action. You can also modify or remove existing holds.

There are two categories of hold reasons: Non-Compliance and Compliance.

Non-Compliance hold reasons are:

  • For Check
  • Other (Campus)
  • Other (Sponsor)
  • Pending Fully Executed Agreement
  • Pending Notice to Process/Activation Notice
  • PI Signature
  • Revised Budget

Compliance hold reasons are:

  • Administrative Support
  • Cost Share
  • Export Control
  • F&A
  • Federal Flow-Through
  • IACUC Approval
  • IRB Approval
  • SFI/FCOI
  • PHS Training

Notes:

  • Holds on Applications do not enforce any process rules.
  • The system will automatically place some compliance holds on Funding Actions and Post-Award Changes. See the section on Automatic Holds for further details.
