OSP staff create Funding Actions (FA) and Post-Award Changes (PAC) using SPAERC. Once OSP completes the actions, they send them electronically to GCA for final processing.
You can return an FA or PAC to OSP for any needed changes by clicking the Return to OSP link on the left navigation menu. Once OSP makes the changes, they would resend the action for processing. The following images shows the link.
