IMPLEMENTATION: Thursday, May 25, 2017 after 7:00 P.M.
IMPACT: Only IPFs created and routed after implementation will utilize the new passive approval process. IPFs created prior to implementation and routed after the conversion will utilize the prior routing structure. IPFs created and routed prior to conversion will also utilize the prior routing structure.

OSR is pleased to announce the roll-out of a revised routing structure within RAMSeS for proposal submissions. The revised routing is in response to feedback from UNC-CH campus users.

The new routing will allow a proposal IPF to route to OSR/SPO/OCT immediately after approval by the administrative award department. The assigned central office reviewer may now review the proposal while it concurrently routes to affiliated departments for approval or rejection. All affiliated departments will have either 2 business days or by the sponsor deadline (whichever comes first) to approve or reject the IPF.

If the affiliated department does not actively approve or reject the IPF within this timeframe, RAMSeS passively approves the IPF allowing the central office reviewer to approve the IPF and submit the proposal. It is still important that affiliated departments continue to review the proposal IPF because passive approval indicates that the affiliated department has assumed responsibility for the proposal submission for their department and agree with the terms and conditions described therein.

We invite you to continue to provide feedback to regarding the new RAMSeS routing effectiveness and provide recommendations on improvements we can consider for future updates.
