      • Coeus 4.4 is available for Testing on the MIT Coeus Test Instance
      • User Guides have been made available on the Wiki
      • NIH K Funding – Some New Forms may be needed for K-Funding Opportunities. Available in the next Coeus release.

  • Award Sequencing and Hierarchy – Jennifer Quinn, Brown, Ron Schultz, Johns Hopkins
    • Typically Used to Create a new copy of the award leaving the old copy intact.
    • If all we’re doing is Editing Awards, we’ll need to consider Sequencing, as that’s what Kuali Coeus Will Do: Always create a new sequence rather than editing. This is more auditable.
    • Type of “New, Mod, Correction” defines precisely what this additional sequence does to the original award.

  • Award Sequencing and Hierarchy – Jennifer Quinn, Brown, Ron Schultz, Johns Hopkins
    • Reasons to create a new sequence
      • Additional Obligations
      • Changing Departments or PI
      • No Cost Extensions
      • De-obligations
      • Adding New Contract Terms
      • Contact Info Changes at a certain point in time.
    • How?
      • Award Hierarchy / New Entry Creates a New Sequence

UMDNJ

  • Award Sequencing and Hierarchy – Jennifer Quinn, Brown, Ron Schultz, Johns Hopkins
    • We’re just using Editing (I Think)
    • Reasons to reconsider:
      • Editing is going away
      • There’s no specific copy of the original state before a change
      • You would only use Edit for corrections to incorrectly entered data
      • Having an additional sequence has auditability. Comments are an official record for MIT and are not part of the notice of awards.

  • Award Sequencing and Hierarchy – Jennifer Quinn, Brown, Ron Schultz, Johns Hopkins
    • 2 Tier vs 3 Tier Award Hierarchies
      • The model UMDNJ is using is a 2 Tier, different than Brown’s 2 Tier Award Hierarchy where:
        • Tier 1 – Project Wide
        • Tier 2 – Specific year of the project
        • I believe that Drexel is doing the same thing.
      • Brown is using a 2 Tier Award Hierarchy where:
        • Tier 1 – Linked Projects
        • Tier 2 – Actual Project with any new years of the award appearing as a sequence
        • This seems to be the most commonly used model

UMDNJ

UMDNJ

  • Award Sequencing and Hierarchy – Jennifer Quinn, Brown, Ron Schultz, Johns Hopkins
    • UCSD has a report for all sequences of an award (Typically reports are done only of the most recent sequence number, this would be an historical report)
    • 2 Tier vs 3 Tier vs N Tier Award Hierarchies
      • The model UCB is using is a 3 Tier Fixed Award Hierarchy where:
        • Tier 1 – Whole Project
        • Tier 2 – Project Award – May be awarded for Multiple Years
        • Tier 3 – Each Year of an Award
        • Continuation of an Award would again be found in the same Tier 1 award in Tier 2 (after the original award) with the awarded multiple years found under the continuation award
        • They don’t report expenditures within Coeus

UMDNJ

  • Award Sequencing and Hierarchy – Jennifer Quinn, Brown, Ron Schultz, Johns Hopkins
    • Concerns:
      • If an award comes in with multiple parts, each with a different IDC Rate, a separate child would be created
      • If a PI has two labs on a specific award, two children would be created, one for each lab.
      • Budgeted = Anticipated, Acquired and Used = Obligated
      • Each Lab might have a separate account number, so each award would reference that account number.
      • Consortiums would need to be considered
      • Imported projects would need to be considered.

  • Award Sequencing and Hierarchy – Jennifer Quinn, Brown, Ron Schultz, Johns Hopkins
    • Award Hierarchy can be used to track specific spending
      • Equipment
    • How do you decide on using the same account or creating a new account.
      • MIT: Keep an account intact as long as possible. Only if there’s a reason to have a different account, then create one. On Coeus, create an award hierarchy node for each account.

  • Award Sequencing and Hierarchy – Jennifer Quinn, Brown, Ron Schultz, Johns Hopkins
    • Sponsor Funded Academic Units:
      • Appropriate Faculty
      • Tuition Costs
      • Accounts
      • Ability to Distribute Funds
    • Far more auditing requests will be made to satisfy the Economic Stimulus Accountability:
      • Recommend using Sequencing as it maintains the status at a certain point in time in perpetuity and further changes are made to the next sequence number. No way of making further changes to the prior sequence number for an award.

  • Award Sequencing and Hierarchy – Jennifer Quinn, Brown, Ron Schultz, Johns Hopkins
    • What about Reporting Distributable?
      • Brown does it all the time, if you’re interested in what’s still in an award which hasn’t been used, it’s available within the distributable
    • MIT: Parent Awards:
      • Glued Together Projects

    • UMDNJ (Mahon) has seen some.
    • Are newly terminated grants going to be able to be labeled as retained on existing gratns?
    • One user noted:
      • We’ll need to do a benchmark on existing human resources, before receiving any Economic Stimulus Positions.
      • Measure against that benchmark over time

    • KERBEROS
    • CERTAPACHE
    • 8 character limit on Coeus – most ldaps allow defining a long name (Edward.Castagna) and a short name (castageg). Authenticate against short name.
    • If not: you’ll have to translate long name to short name in Coeus. Pradeep
    • Failover may be enabled by using multicampus ldap, defining second campus ldap server to be the failover ldap server.
