eRAM: Add Sponsor/Funding Information

Overview

All projects must have an internal and/or external sponsor/funding source. PIs and protocol editors will be able to associate their protocol to multiple funding sources including grants. Users can associate to any grant in the eResearch Proposal Management (eRPM) system. However, there will be a confirmation that the associated grant is applicable for the protocol. 

Documents related to the sponsor/funding source can be attached to the application when completing the Sponsor/Funding Information page.

All questions must be answered and fields filled out in order to submit the application.

 

Important Information

  • If the project has an external sponsor, complete the External Sponsors section.
  • If the project has an internal sponsor, complete the Internal Sponsors section.
  • If the project has both internal and external sponsors, both sections must be completed.
