The Office of Sponsored Programs and the Division of Financial Services would like to announce the next Research Administrators Round Table to be held on Tuesday, October 6th from 10:00am-12:00 pm at the Erikson Alumni Center. Our previous round table sessions were very well attended, with nearly 200 people attending. Planned topics for this meeting include: General overview on the use of Kuali Coeus (KC) BlueSheet, the upcoming replacement for the Electronic Blue Sheet (EBS) proposal routing and approval tool; Uniform Guidance and your existing projects; and, life-cycle of an award.
We are planning on having the KC BlueSheet rolled out to campus by early winter and this overview will provide you a first look at the system works and how it works and some of the differences from the current EBS. If you are involved in the proposal process in any manner, we believe this would be a valuable session for you to attend.
Also on the agenda for this meeting is reviewing the life-cycle of an award and using this as a platform for not only future round table sessions, but also individualized college and/or departmental training sessions. We are very interested in your input as to where you feel additional training/discussion may be needed.
The hope is that these meetings become your meetings suggesting topics of interest to you and from which the rest of campus could also benefit. If you have any topics that you would like to have discussed by the unit(s) that are involved in the process, please email Cindy Jarvis at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to seeing you at the Erikson Alumni Center on Tuesday, October 6 at 10:00 am. There is free parking at the Alumni Center.
