AURA Grants – Data Clean-Up Initiative

Hi All –

The URA eRA Group is gearing up to begin a data clean-up initiative, focused on unfunded Pending Proposals & Awards past their end date (still listed as “Active” in the system).

Please contact the AURA Help Desk @ AURA-Help@uchicago.edu if you are aware of any records that should be updated and we will work with your URA Manager to correct the outdated information accordingly. Otherwise, we will follow the criteria listed below.

  • Pending Proposals - focus will be on those submitted > 2 years ago
    • FPs will be moved to a “Sponsor Decline” state unless otherwise informed by the department. FPs can be awarded directly out of a declined state, if the sponsor decides to fund at a later date.
  • Active Awards - FAS data will be used to determine the status and if the record can be closed.

Please let me know if you have any questions or other concerns you would like addressed!
