We encourage all faculty members to provide information about the grants they've received that provide a percent credit, direct funds to CCR, and/or were awarded based on use of CCR's resources.


Providing funds to CCR will allow us to boost your priority and jobs run by everyone in your group will start faster.  More details can be found on our website



Adding grants to your project:


To enter grant information, click the green "Add Grant" button from the Project Description view.  


Fill in all fields pertaining to your grant (anything with an asterisk* is required) and click the blue "Save" button.  Descriptions of the fields are as follows:

Title - enter the full title of the grant provided by the funding agency
Grant number from funding agency - enter grant number provided by the funding agency.  If this grant is still pending, enter 0000
Role - choose from PI, Co-PI, or SP (senior personnel)
Grant PI Full Name - if you're not the PI, please enter the PI's full name.  We use this to ensure that we're not counting the same grant multiple times 

Funding agency - select from list.  If it is not in the list, choose Other and enter the name in the next field

Other funding agency - enter the agency's name if not found in the list

Other award number - enter if there are several numbers given to the grant

Grant start date - select from the calendar when the grant begins

Grant end date - select from the calendar when the grant ends

Percent credit - this is the number listed on the UB Sponsored Projects form for a grant submission as financial credit to the department/unit in the credit distribution section.  If you listed a percent of the grant to give to CCR, enter that here.  If not, enter 0

Direct funding - funds budgeted specifically for CCR services, hardware, software, and/or personnel support.  If none, enter 0

Total amount awarded - total amount you were awarded in the grant.  We use this to show how much CCR is supporting in research dollars.

Status - choose from active, archived, or pending




Once created, you'll see the grant listed in the project description view:





Editing grant info:


You can edit existing grant information by clicking on the pencil icon under the Actions column.  Make changes to any fields you need to and then click the blue "Save" button.

You can delete the grant by clicking on the red "Delete Grants" button.  You will be presented with a list of all grants associated with the project, both active and past (expired).  Click the checkbox next to the grant(s) you'd like deleted and then click the red "Delete selected grants from project" button.




We are working with UB's Research Foundation to make this information searchable from their databases.  In the future, we hope to make this information an easy import into your project.
