Approving Advances

The approval flow for an advance starts with approvals by the principal investigator, campus advance reviewers, and SFI reviewers (when needed). The advance is then reviewed and processed by Grant & Contract Accounting (GCA). Review: Advance Approval Process.

SAGE automatically routes the advance to the individuals and advance reviewer units included in the approval flow. The system sends email notifications of pending approvals to Advance Reviewers on campus. Review: Advance Budget Request Email Notifications.

Campus advance reviewers can access the advance from the link in their email notification or from the Approvals tab in SAGE. After reviewing, they can approve the request or return it to campus for modifications.
