A Funding Action (FA) is the electronic mechanism by which OSP transmits award information to Grant and Contract Accounting (GCA) when a proposal is funded. GCA uses 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, an email notification that an FA has been created, along with the attached FA, is sent to the PI, eGC1 preparer and contacts, and select reviewers. This notification communicates to the research team that they can now submit charges against the account.
