January 2022 Project Update

RAMP Tip of the Month

Why am I getting a notification that an Ancillary Review was submitted if I did not request the Ancillary Review?

Agreement Owners may need subject matter experts such as EH&S, Legal, Human Subjects Protection, etc., to review an agreement before it can be executed. If the Agreement Owner requests an Ancillary Review, when the subject matter expert(s) submits the review, RAMP automatically notifies the Agreement Owner, the PI, and any PI Proxies that the review has been submitted. The notification received by the PI/PI Proxies is purely informational and requires no action on the part of the PI/PI Proxies.

Upcoming Events

CAMS (COI system) will be active and integrated with RAMP beginning 10 January. There will also be an updated SF424 software upgrade the week of 19 January. Information will be available @ SF424 Grants after 18 January.
