Grants Management

The Compass (PeopleSoft Financials 9.2) Grants module is designed to support the key business processes associated with the administration of sponsored research activities. It is the primary module for managing proposal (i.e. pre-award) and award (i.e. post-award) data and processes. 

Grants administrative functions include proposal routing (EPEX) and budget preparation and submission, award processing, award management, and award closeout.
