myResearch - Grants

Project Background

The main objective of the Grants module is to provide a customizable transmittal sheet and online budgets that can implement institutional policies.  Electronic routing for internal review, notifications, and error checking ensure transparency and a first-time successful transmission.  Post-award, the system streamlines modifications and annual renewals, supports sub-recipient monitoring, and enables full integration with existing accounting systems.


The Office of the Vice President for Research (OVPR) aims to achieve the following benefits by implementing the Grants module:

  • Standardizes budget preparation and review

  • Minimizes sponsored research review time

  • Opportunity coverage for NIH, NSF, DoD, and more

  • Eliminates redundant data entry and improves collaboration between sponsored research and finance

  • Expedites award setup and improves financial accuracy

  • Transparent award change management

  • Ensures consistent processes and timely reminders to researchers and staff for pending work items

  • Provides management visibility into research portfolio demographics and financial planning metrics

  • Management of budgets, milestones, contract terms, sub-recipients, and compliance status
