Things to note about the web form:

Workflow processing flow

Workflow Processing Flow:

College Grants Officer (CGO) is notified that the e-IAF has been submitted

  • Submitter adds attachments (if not PI)

  • PI certifies

  • College Grants Officer of PI reviews (CGO for Alternate Dept if filled in, then CGO of primary organization unit)

  • Additional Investigators certify

  • Person at 1st level reviews and approves if appropriate. This could be the Chair, Center Director, ADR, etc. depending on the approval flow for this particular work item.

  • If Additional Investigators are in a different college from PI, their CGO reviews

  • Person at 2nd level reviews and approves if appropriate. This could be the Center Director, ADR, Dean, etc. depending on the approval flow for the particular work item.

    PI is notified by email that all approvals are completed

    OSPA is notified by email that all approvals are completed

Additional items

Additional Items:

Your first point of contact for any issue is the CGO.

If the PI or Co-I fail to certify, a reminder email will be sent after 6 hours.

If the 1st or 2nd level approver fail to approve, they also receive a reminder email after 6 hours. After 24 hours of no action, an email will be sent to the approver’s delegate for action.

T-code ZGM_SWI6 is used to view the e-IAF or follow the workflow in SAP. Auto forward email can also be used to have the business officer in the review.

The Conflict of Interest (COI) form will be an annual process within the next year. Until then, follow your college recommendation for submission of the form. However, once an attachment is added, it may be viewed by each subsequent person in the workflow.

Important reminder

IMPORTANT REMINDER!

Beginning with applications due on or after April 2, 2012, no proposal shall be submitted to any external funding agency unless a fully executed e-IAF has been received by OSPA at least three business days prior to the sponsor's published deadline. For more detail, read the following memo from the Vice President for Research.

http://www.research.uky.edu/faculty/documents/eIAFPolicy_26Jan12.pdf

  • Example of three business days: If the sponsor has a deadline for electronic proposal submission of 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, May 10 the completed e-IAF is due in OSPA before 8:00 a.m. on Tuesday, May 8.

  • April 2 is a Monday. If the sponsor has a deadline for electronic proposal submission of 5:00 on April 2, a completed e-IAF must be received by OSPA before 8:00 a.m. on Thursday, March 29.

  • A fully executed e-IAF means that the PI, all co-Investigators, applicable chairs, directors and deans or associate deans have certified electronically through workflow in MyUK. Once the final certification has been made, the PI and OSPA will be notified by email.
