SPA process enhancements

Sponsored Projects: Invoicing Process Improvement

Effective immediately, SPA will copy PIs and project team members on invoices and reports sent to sponsors. This will help to improve awareness and internal calibration, which will help UGA maintain positive sponsor relationships. This process improvement has been catalogued in the Grants section of the enhancements roadmap, if you would like share with your teams.

Sponsored Projects: Award Setup Process Improvement

Effective immediately, the Sponsored Projects Administration team will provide weekly status updates to PIs if a project takes more than 30 days to establish. These updates will include the reason for the delay, along with any information needed from the sponsor or the UGA team to complete award setup. SPA also has a number of initiatives in progress to reduce overall setup time for awards and award modifications.  This process improvement has been catalogued in the Grants section of the enhancements roadmap, if you would like share with your teams.
