Notes:

  • Holds on Applications do not enforce any process rules.

July 2015 SAGE Maintenance Release

Overview:  Sponsored Program Activity Revisions

The majority of the July maintenance release is focused on updating the way sponsored program activities are defined and clustered in SAGE on both the eGC1 and on Funding Actions.  Prior to these changes, the “Funding Purpose” field on the eGC1 and the “Type of Award” field on the Funding Action tracked different but similar values.  This causes confusion for consumers of the data and challenges in reporting to federal sponsors, since neither field aligns cleanly with the categories used for federal reporting.

With the below changes, the eGC1 and FA activity types will be brought into alignment with each other, and with the federal reporting categories.  Additional fields are also being added to extend automation of reporting further.

Below are the current eGC1 and FA fields and the new Sponsored Program Activity Type fields for reference:

Current eGC1 “Funding Purpose” Current Funding Action “Type of Award”
  • Research: Basic
  • Research: Applied
  • Training: Research
  • Training: Other
  • Equipment
  • Fellowship: Undergraduate
  • Fellowship: Graduate/Professional
  • Clinical Trial
  • Construction
  • Conference/Workshop
  • IPA/JPA/Staff Assignment
  • Miscellaneous/Other
  • Other Sponsored Activity
  • Research
  • Training (Research)
  • Training (Other)
  • Fellowship (Grad & Professional)
  • Fellowship (Undergrad)
  • Equipment
  • Other Sponsored Activity
  • Miscellaneous

Instruction

  • Training and Development (UW Internal)
  • Fellowship: Non-Research Undergraduate
  • Fellowship: Non-Research Graduate/Professional

Other Sponsored Activity

  • Professional Development/Public Service (UW External)
  • Construction
  • Equipment
  • Clinical Trial: Non-Federal Sponsors
  • Other Sponsored Activity
  • IPA/JPA/Staff Assignment

Specific changes within SPAERC  are as follows.

Replace FA Type of Award with Sponsored Program Activity Type

The Type of Award field on the Funding Action is replaced by a new Sponsored Program Activity Type field that will display in both SPAERC and SERA.  The options available will align with federal Uniform Guidance and will mirror those on the eGC1.    The Sponsored Program Activity Type on the first Funding Action for an eGC1 will auto-populate the selection on the parent eGC1.  When an eGC1 has multiple existing Funding Actions, the Sponsored Program Activity Type will auto-populate from the selection on the first/oldest Funding Action.

Migrate historical data to FA Sponsored Program Activity Type

The Sponsored Program Activity Type field is populated on all existing Funding Actions based on eGC1 Funding Purpose and Funding Action Type of Award data.  Populating the SPA Type field on all existing Funding Actions will allow for consistent historical reporting.

Add Clinical Trial Phase to the FA

When the Sponsored Program Activity Type is one of the two Clinical Trial activities (federal or non-federal sponsored), a Clinical Trial Phase field will display on the Funding Action in SPAERC. This will assist in reporting to the federal government.

View eGC1 Sponsored Program Activity Type from SPAERC

The new sponsored program activity type field will be viewable on the eGC1, the Control Sheet, and the task list in SPAERC.

May 2015 Maintenance Release

Applications: FCOI JIT Process Change

  • With the creation of a new Just-In-Time flag being added to the Pre-Award Notification, the Just-In-Time button in the application Sponsor Decision window has been removed.
  • The FCOI Just-In-Time email notification has been updated to send upon a new JIT flag being set on a Pre-Award Notification, or, upon the creation of a Funding Action. The primary contacts on the eGC1 will now only receive the FCOI JIT email once, rather than anytime the contacts listed on the eGC1 change.

Grant Runner Applications – Print Preview of Grants.gov Forms

In order to provide OSP reviewers with an alternative way of viewing Grant Runner forms, a PDF print preview feature has been added to the upper task bar of each Grant Runner form, merging the data into the familiar Grants.Gov form. Users may find this a helpful way of viewing Grant Runner forms and eGC1 details side-by-side.

At this time, users can print the Grant Runner forms individually. ORIS is working on a feature that will allow for printing of the entire Grant Runner form set in a single PDF. That feature will be released at a later date.

Please note there is a known defect with the PDF not showing attachment names. Until this issue is resolved, users should refer to the SPAERC Grant Runner form to open and view attachments.

Auto-Generated Documents

  • The eGC1 Preparer will now be included as a recipient of the following auto-generated email notifications:
    • Application Review Notice
    • Notice of Award
    • Request for Activation Notice for Fellowships

Funding Actions (FA)

  • In order to apply the uniform guidance requirements with more clarity and consistency, the Sponsor Award Date on the Funding Action is now required prior to it being sent to GCA.

Pre-Award Notifications (PAN)

  • A new Notification Type of “Just-In-Time” has been added to the PAN so that OSP staff can correctly identify the content of the sponsor fundable score notification received, and facilitate earlier communication of just-in-time to other compliance offices such as the Office of Animal Welfare (OAW).

Subcontracts

  • A new Subcontract Title field has been added to Subcontract shell so that the OSP Subcontracts team can more easily identify particular subcontracts by name, and to facilitate future automation of federal reporting.
  • The Subcontracts tasklist can be sorted and filtered by the new Subcontract Title field.
  • A new Subcontract Action type of “Non-Contractual Revision” has been added to identify those SAs related to PAS/ARIBA transitions.

May 2014

The following updates were released on May 29, 2014.

  • New date fields have been added to the funding action to capture “Sponsor Award Date” and “OSP Received Date”. In addition, the Award Received data has been relabeled “FA Creation Date”. This was to allow OSP to meet federal reporting requirements.
  • The following changes were made to the subcontracts page in order to help OSP report to the federal government.
    1. Reporting Date is now labeled Issue Date.
    2. Date Received is now labeled Assignment Date.
    3. Fully Executed date field has been added to the Subcontract Action.
    4. Date fields were re-ordered for the Subcontract Action.
  • GIM 19 email notifications and HSD JIT email notifications will no longer be sent for applications that are after-the-fact or clinical trials.
