This post has been updated to reflect the new date to implement the fix in ERA.
A system issue in ERA is affecting a small proportion of post-award at-risk requests. When an RA submits a post-award at-risk request that 1) includes a unit guarantee AND 2) is for time only, the request bypasses Cost Center Manager approval. All other at-risk request remain unaffected. A fix for this issue has been identified and will be implemented in ERA on May 19, 2020.
Guidance for New Requests Created Prior to 5/19/2020
RA’s that need to create a new post-award at-risk for time-only that includes a unit-guarantee should secure Cost Center Manager approval via email. The Cost Center Manager approval should be uploaded to the Award Change Request in ERA prior to submitting the request for review.
Guidance for Processed Requests Created Prior to 5/19/2020
Research Operations is reaching out to affected users to let them know about the issue and also to secure Cost Center Manager approvals as appropriate. No action is required from the initiator at this time.
