New RAM Tracker Transparency Dashboard
Research Award Management (RAM) Tracker was created to assist the Office of Sponsored Research (OSR) with day-to-day management of award requests by providing real-time visibility of transaction status in process. The RAM Tracker Transparency roll-out last year provided campus users access to the tool and to view individual RAM Tracker information via the Events tab.
A new enhancement is now available for RAM Tracker Transparency that includes a search interface allowing campus users assigned certain departmental roles in Backbone the ability to search for/view RAM Tracker transactions in those departments via a dashboard. With any of the roles listed below, users will now see a new navigation block on the RAMSeS homepage with a link for RAM Tracker Search.
Backbone Roles Needed
- Role Manager
- Award Data Access
- IPF Approver
- Proposal Date Access
- PS Project ID Manager
Access requests for RAM Tracker Transparency may be assigned by the Backbone Role Manager for each department/unit.
