  • New pre-written queries will give you more reporting choices (GMQ’s and PIQ’s)

Session objectives
Session Objectives

  • For Query Viewers/Managers

    • Review Report and Production Databases

    • Explain Access/Security in the Report Database

    • Grants Revenue Recognition and Payments

    • Use the Pre-Written Queries (EZQs, GMQs, PIQs)

    • Look at BUDDY

  • For Query Managers

    • Review Additional Info Needed to Create Queries

    • Explain Design and Security of the New UOD Grants Tables

    • Data Dictionary

The report instance for the query viewer manager
The report instancefor the Query Viewer/Manager

  • Report database – Grants Reporting ready now

    • A copy of the production database

    • Updated nightly – data is one day older than production

    • Example: JV you do today will be there tomorrow

    • Security is based on Purposes or DeptID (for proposals)

    • Security changes/updates also take one day to be reflected in Reporting database

  • Where can I find the report instance?

    • www.udel.edu/financials

Production vs report access for the query viewer manager
Production vs. Report Accessfor the Query Viewer/Manager

  • Proposals entry/review - FIPRD (production database).www.udel.edu/grants

  • Run reports/queries on grants data - FIRPT (report database).www.udel.edu/financials

    • Some tables are secured by Purpose and others by Dept ID, your access will impact query results

    • Staff who enter proposals will need access to related Dept ID or Purposes in order to query the proposal/award

    • This is especially important for Grants with multiple projects and departments

Viewing your reporting access
Viewing your Reporting Access

Run these queries to see your current access:


    • Enter your user id to see DEPT IDs you have access to view


    • Enter your last name with the % (wildcard) to see the Purposes you have access to view

      To request new or additional access:

  • e-mail your Dean’s or Director’s Office contact with DeptIDs and/or Purposes. Your contact will forward approval to [email protected]

Understanding grants revenue recognition
Understanding Grants Revenue Recognition

  • In legacy system, grant revenue was recognized when cash was received

  • In new Financials System, grant revenue is recognized as expenses are incurred; not when cash is received.

  • A GMQ is coming that will show when cash is actually received (GMQ_CASH_RECEIVED_BY_CONTR).

Reports for the query viewer manager
Reportsfor the Query Viewer/Manager

Pre-written reports/queries:

  • EZQ’s provide Purpose fund balances

  • GMQ’s provide Proposal or Project detail

  • PIQ’s provide PI related information

  • See Handout: Grants Reporting Queries

    BUDDY – Quickly access transactions and add additional information to transactions (“tag data”)

And this report coming soon
And This Report Coming Soon!

  • PI Snapshot – Statement of all projects for a PI, returning the expenses in the major categories and current balance as well as obligations.

    • Will run on-request under the UD Processes menu

    • Will be an Excel spreadsheet

    • Results will be found in Report Manager (like monthly accounting statements)


Bringing University Data Directly to You

A web based dynamic report using UD People Soft financial data

Why would i use buddy instead of udfinancials query
Why would I use BUDDY Instead of UDFinancials Query?

  • BUDDY decreases response time for inquiry

  • For routine inquiries to transactions and balances

    • Easy way for PI’s and Chairs to get Purpose balances

  • Ability to tag/comment on transactions

    • 3 additional free form userfields (Comments) can be added after transaction is posted to UD Financials.

    • UD Chartfield (User Field) is updateable in BUDDY (does not write back to UDFinancials!!!!)

When is buddy data updated
When is BUDDY data updated?

  • Daily at 9:00 am from FIRPT.

    • Update process can take some time and is completed by noon.

    • A JV you process today will show up in BUDDY tomorrow afternoon.

    • www.udel.edu/buddy

Where do I find BUDDY?

Writing reports for the query manager
Writing Reportsfor the Query Manager

  • How do I make my own queries?

    • Query Manager access needed

      • Take Query Class before access granted

      • Query Training on web (www.udel.edu/UDFS/info (click training tab)

    • Start with existing public query (GMQ) and ‘save as’ your own using your naming convention

    • Or start from scratch with ‘create new query’

Create new query for the query manager

  • Data is stored in tables. “UOD Views” were created by combining the most commonly used Grants tables (records).

  • The UOD Views have row level security by DeptID or Purpose

(See the Data Dictionary at www.udel.edu/UDFS/info)

  • Award Attributes View UOD_AWD_ATRB_VW

  • Proposal Budget View UOD_PRP_BUD_VW

  • Proposal Attributes View UOD_PRP_ATRB_VW
