The Office of Sponsored Research (OSR) is pleased to announce a two-part RAMSeS system enhancement. RAM Tracker Transparency and a new Attachments section in the RAMSeS Billing Tab will provide campus users access to additional research administration information. A summary of the enhancements are listed below and a detailed guide is available on the OSR website.
RAM Tracker Transparency
Research Award Management (RAM) Tracker system was created to assist OSR staff and leadership with day-to-day management of post-award transactions. It provides a means to document and track actions in real-time as they move through OSR workflow. The RAM Tracker Transparency enhancement enables campus users with access to Proposals and/or Awards in RAMSeS to view key RAM Tracker information via the Events tab on the Proposal Routing Status and Project Administration screens. Access requests to these screens may be assigned by the Backbone Role Manager for each department/unit.
Key fields available with Ram Tracker views include:
- Routing Information
- Current Owner
- Responsible Sponsored Projects Specialist
- Current Status and Status History
- Transaction Details
- Type and Subtype
- Pending Reviews
- Budget Dates and Amounts
- Subrecipient Information
