Decommission of PI Dashboard

In an effort to streamline the sources of financial data for sponsored projects, the PI Dashboard in Infoporte will be decommissioned effective January 10, 2023.

PI Dashboard was conceived as a reporting tool to assist campus administrators and faculty investigators with a high-level review of financial and personnel funding data on sponsored projects. Since its implementation, the Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP) and Information Technology Systems (ITS) collaboratively developed a more robust and detailed reporting tool for managing sponsored project financials with the release of RAM Reports.

Transition to RAM Reports

RAM Reports provide access to the same award data found in PI Dashboard with improved functionality such as drilling into transaction details and allowing users easy hyperlink access to related ConnectCarolina and RAMSeS data. Any user with an active onyen who annually accepts the Terms of use for University Administrative Systems Policy can access RAM Reports. Included below is a a viewable comparison of key features in RAM Reports and the benefits of using it for sponsored projects financial reporting.

Learn even more about what RAM Reports have to offer on the RAM Reports webpage and guidance document. Importantly, OSP and ITS continuously strive to provide enhanced functionality in RAM Reports and welcome user feedback. We encourage all to provide recommendations for RAM Reports using the feedback form.
