Updates to NSF FASTLANE account management

We wanted you to be aware of some changes we are making to the account administration process in NSF FASTLANE. Moving forward, individual users outside of URA will no longer automatically have permission to add, update, or delete the FASTLANE accounts of staff and PIs.

Account management in FASTLANE will now be coordinated by URA. Only URA managers and certain approved departmental administrators will have the ability to amend FASTLANE users’ accounts.

If you need to update or correct a PI or colleague’s FASTLANE account, contact AURA-Help@uchicago.edu with the following information.

Our URA Fastlane Page has also been updated to reflect these changes. If you have any questions, please contact us @ AURA-Help@uchicago.edu and we can work to ensure you have the proper access for your position.
