Frequently-Asked Questions

Will SPAERC be going away?

A new OSP/GCA shared application called SAGE Central will be introduced with UWFT go live. SAGE Central will be OSP and GCA’s grants management application going forward. The new Awards section will be built directly in SAGE Central, while some of the other components (non-award agreements, applications processing) will be accessed from SAGE Central, with little change in the way that processing takes place. For those sections not related to Award Setup and Management, it will be the same familiar SPAERC experience, just branded as SAGE Central.
