Use a Funding Action (FA) to transmit award information to Grant and Contract Accounting (GCA) when the sponsor funds a proposal. GCA uses the information provided in the FA for account set-up and award distribution.
The Funding Action includes general information about the project, account set-up, and budget details, among other details.
When GCA completes set up of the account, the system sends an email notification, with a PDF of the FA, to the PI, eGC1 Preparer and Contacts, and select reviewers. This notification lets the research team know they can now submit charges against the account.
