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

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.
