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 setup and award distribution.
The Funding Action includes general information about the project, account setup, and budget details, among other details.
When GCA completes setting up 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.
