Effective July 2nd, all amendments/modifications received from sponsors should be e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. This process applies to all amended award documentations.
Previously, unit administrators were instructed to route Concurrence Requests (CR) through AURA to process these modifications. In addition, some of these requests were e-mailed directly to Post Award Research Administrators in URA.
In an effort to ensure URA processes these awards in a timely manner, we are centralizing the award receipt process and initiating the CRs through URA.
The Account Create Team will initiate a CR in AURA upon receipt of an award modification. They will initiate the ServiceNow Account Create Form, review the award for institutional compliance, update the FAS account, update the AURA budget grid, and forward it on to the Post Award Research Administrator for a dual review.
Unilateral modifications will be reviewed by the Post Award Research Administrator, creating a dual review for data integrity. Bilateral awards will be reviewed as well, negotiated if necessary, and sent out for full execution. Once a fully executed copy is received, the Post Award Research Administrator will approve the CR.
The unit administrator will receive a notification when the amendment has been approved.
For additional questions about this new process, please contact your Post Award Research Administrator.
