The Office of Sponsored Research (OSR) in partnership with the Office of Research Information Systems (ORIS) and Information Technology Services (ITS) has released the new automated project notifications that will keep you informed on changes made to PS Project IDs and help improve your experience managing sponsored projects. You can learn more about Project Notifications on the OSR Guidance webpage.

What action(s) will generate a Project Notification?

Newly Created PS Project ID

Email notification is sent when a new PS Project ID is created on a:

  • Funded Project
  • Project on a Financial Guarantee or Letter of Guarantee (LOG)

An email process exists for new project set-up, but better clarity as to what type of project (Prime or Subagreement) as well as more project details will be provided in these new notifications.

*NEW FEATURE* Change(s) made to a PS Project ID

Email notification is sent when these types of changes occur on a PS Project ID:

  • Change in Principal Investigator
  • Change in Budget (with some exceptions*)
  • Change in Project Dates

*In this initial release, budget information will not be available for clinical trials or interest and income projects, but this is a planned enhancement for future rollouts. More details along with FAQ to help you understand and know what to expect in these project notifications will be available soon on the OSR website.

Who will receive these Project Notifications?

  • Principal Investigators (Award and Project)
  • Award Primary Contact
  • PS Project ID Managers (Award and Project)

Who will receive these Project Notifications?

  • The ConnectCarolina Sponsored Projects attachment will be uploaded to RAMSeS attachments.
