InfoEd Ad hoc Reporting Update

The addition of InfoEd Award Set-up Workflow has brought increased visibility into the award set-up process. Along with that visibility, there are now new options for adhoc reporting.

InfoEd Adhoc Updates

To ensure accurate reporting, please update any saved reports or queries that use proposal status in InfoEd adhoc to include or exclude the new proposal statuses. A mapping of previous statuses to current statuses is below:

Canned Reports

Existing InfoEd canned reports have been updated to handle the new statuses; all reports previously filtered on each of the statuses listed in the lefthand column above were expanded to include the new set of corresponding statuses listed in the righthand column.

New Statuses

Note that two of the new statuses are only used in OSR-Evanston:

  • Award Under OSR-Ev GO Review
  • Pre-Spending Under OSR-Ev GO Review


Other New Statuses

  • The Subproject Award Setup status is used on subproject records when the associated main award record is being processed in workflow.
  • The Post Award Updates status is used to allow OSR to edit awards that have already been set up, such as when budgets are adjusted for outgoing subcontracts.
