The Grants.gov Workspace Job Aid has been updated with the roll out of customizable roles within grants.gov. When requesting access to Grants.gov Workspace for the first time, RAs should request the ‘RA Role’. This role will allow users to create a workspace, own a workspace and check application status for ASU proposals.
Existing users will not be automatically migrated to new roles. ‘RA role’ access is very similar to ‘Manage Workspace’ or ‘Workspace Manager’ access. For questions about Workspace roles, please write to RAhelp@asu.edu.
Note: for post-award RAs and others who may need to track an application after submission – a Workspace role is not necessary for that activity. Any person with a GRANTS tracking number can use the “track my application” feature to verify a proposal has been received by the sponsor agency. GRANTS tracking numbers can be found within the ERA FP site, generally located in the history.
