Approving Awards

The approval flow for an Award Setup Request (ASR) or Modification Request (MOD) starts with the Award Preparer submitting the request.

Optionally, one or more ad hoc reviewers may be included between the Award Preparer node and the OSP Reviewer node. Review: Awards Approval Process.

The ASR or MOD is then reviewed and processed by the Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP).  Review: Approvals.

SAGE automatically routes the award to the reviewer units included in the approval flow. The system sends email notifications of pending approvals to reviewers on campus. Review: Awards Email Notifications. After reviewing, the reviewer can approve the request or return it to the preparer for changes.

Note: In the future, campus organizational reviewers will access the advance from the link in their email notification.
