Use a Funding Action (FA) to transmit award information to Grant and Contract Accounting (GCA) when the sponsor funds a proposal. GCA uses the information provided in the FA for account set-up and award distribution.
The Funding Action includes general information about the project, account set-up, and budget details, among other details.
When GCA completes set up of the account, the system sends an email notification, with a PDF of the FA, to the PI, eGC1 Preparer and Contacts, and select reviewers. This notification lets the research team know they can now submit charges against the account.
You can view, add, update, or delete documents associated with an item. You will use a slightly different process for uploading and attaching documents to Applications compared to Funding Actions and Admin Actions.
The following sections describe the types of documents you might find in the system, how to open them, and how to add documents to Applications, Funding Actions and Administrative Actions, and Subcontracts in SPAERC.
Issue: When creating an FA from an application where the preparer manually enters the values into just the totals column (because there is only one period), the value for the First Period Amount Requested will display as 0 on the FA. The Total Amount Requested will be correct.
