New Award Management Functionality in eRPM

Here's what you can expect in the coming months

To better support the University of Michigan’s business processes for sponsored awards, ORSP, in conjunction with Sponsored Programs, ITS-eResearch, and the research units, is developing new functionality in eRPM with the goal to:

  • Streamline the award management processes;
  • Create greater flexibility in the relationship between PAFs and Awards (AWDs);
  • Increase the visibility of award details and related items (e.g., individual funding commitments, compliance factors, required deliverables);
  • Provide consistent award data between eRPM and U-M’s financial system (M-Pathways); and
  • Enhance the “big picture” view of sponsored awards at the University of Michigan. 

Award Management Lifecycle


  • June 2018 - User Acceptance Testing (UAT) *
  • July 2018 - Training for units and central offices
  • August 2018 - Implementation**

*During User Acceptance Testing (UAT) representatives from the advisory teams will have a chance to preview the new award management functionality to ensure that the requirements provided have been met. No new functionality is expected to be added during UAT.

**Note that future enhancements are planned, such as automated routing and approval of the current paper-based Project Award Change Request (PAC-R) Form.
