GCA staff use SERA (System for Electronic Research Accounting) to view and process items related to the awarded proposals. From within SERA, they can access Funding Actions (FA), Post-Award Changes (PAC), and Advance Budget Number Requests (ADV). From an FA, the GCA staff can see a read-only version of the application, and view its attachments.
GCA staff is responsible for creating grant award budgets in the financial system based on FAs sent by OSP or advance budget requests, sent by campus. They also process any administrative changes as indicated by a PAC.
To use SERA, a GCA staff person must be given an appropriate GCA role by their ASTRA administrator.
