9.2 Generate an Award

Purpose:  After you submit a proposal and the sponsor approves it for funding, you will then need to generate an Award.  The Award Generation process brings specified information from the proposal into award tables in PeopleSoft Grants. This process also maps proposal-related fields in PeopleSoft Grants to fields in PeopleSoft Contracts and PeopleSoft Project Costing.

Audience:  Finance/Grant Fiscal Staff.

You must have at least one of these local college managed security roles:
