The Sponsored Project Procedures & Guidelines applicable to lifecycle stages.
Award Setup Guidelines
OverviewUpon receiving a sponsor award notice or update to an award, a Grants and Contracts Administrator (GCA) collaborates with the Post Award Administrator to initiate the account set-up/modification process. New accounts are set up/modified in the PeopleSoft Financial System (Grants Management Application Suite; the official record for all sponsored accounts at Northern Arizona University). Once the account(s) are set up an Notification of Award Actions is sent out to the PI, along with several Department based contacts-receivers, regarding a sponsored award notice accepted by the University. The award terms and conditions, dates and dollars, and accounts activated for the award are included.
NOTICE OF AWARD ACTIONThe Notice of Award Action provides pertinent information regarding the award setup in the PeopleSoft Financial System such as:
- type of action (project activation/modification)
- project number
- speedchart number
