New Award Management Functionality Will Be Here August 20, 2018


On August 20, 2018, new Award Management functionality will be released in eResearch Proposal Management (eRPM).

System Availability

To implement this functionality and complete data conversion, eRPM will be unavailable from Friday, August 17, 5:30 pm - Monday, August 20, 6:00 am. 

Award Management Functionality Overview

Units will use a new workspace in eRPM to access Award information and to run new award management activities for maintenance of award data throughout the project lifecycle.

This new approach introduces a single award number that:

  • Aligns with M-Pathways Financials
  • References all related Proposal Approval Forms (PAFs)
  • Includes reference to all related compliance records and sub-contract

Additional Resources


eRPM Award Management Training Page

To help prepare Research Administrators and Unit Reviewer/Approvers, ITS prepared job aids, reference materials, and FAQs. These resources are posted on the eRPM Award Management training page.

The eRPM Sandbox has been updated with the new functionality and with award records converted from existing active PAFs. The Sandbox will be updated periodically with additional converted data between now and August 20th.
