Purpose: Use this document as a reference for managing an award in ctcLink.

Audience: Finance/Grant Fiscal Staff.

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

The information that is used to create and maintain the award profile establishes an award, which is defined as an executed agreement between an institution and a sponsor within the post-award system.

An award is associated with one business unit, one billing sponsor, and one award sponsor. Each award must have at least one project and at least one activity. The system provides the bulk of this award setup information when the award generation process is run.
