Accessing SAGE Approvals

To access SAGE, you need an ASTRA role. Someone who creates eGC1s usually has a Proposal Preparer or Principal Investigator role, while a campus approver will typically have one of the reviewer roles: Division Reviewer, Department or Center Reviewer, or Dean Reviewer. Compliance reviewers have distinct ASTRA roles.

Campus approvers access eGC1s based on a combination of their role and the associated organization code. So a Dean Reviewer for the School of Medicine would be able to access only those eGC1s that include that unit and role combination on the approval flow.

To access the eGC1 you need to approve, you can either:

  • Click on the link in the email notification you received, which after signing in will display the eGC1. Notification text example:

    Please click the link below to access, review and approve (or return) eGC1 A999999 so the application can continue the electronic approval process.
