ERA SmartGrant Information

The Office of Research is pleased to inform you that it has secured, under contract with ERA SmartGrant, an electronic research administration software that will assist the University in conducting research administration (pre-award and post-award processes) in an integrated and automated environment. The software will allow for electronic routing and approving of forms and documents and more efficient storage and retrieval of information related to your proposals and funded grants. Initial roll-out is scheduled for July 1, 2018, but use of the system will be phased in gradually by unit. Each unit will be informed when their implementation will begin. Thank you for your patience as we phase in this system. For more information, please contact the Office of Research at Also, visit this webpage for more information as it becomes available.
