Renewal Awards

Purpose

This document describes the process for establishing renewal awards.

Renewal Award Process

A renewal provides additional funding for a new period in an existing sponsored program. Renewals can be established by creating new awards, projects, or tasks or by extending period on existing one. The determination on how renewals are established depends on the sponsor reporting requirements. The following table outlines the renewal award process:

Step

Action

1

Establish renewal award, project, or task.

2

Run the "RF: Transfer Labor Schedule for Renewal Awards" process.

3

View "RF: Transfer Labor Schedules for Renewal Awards Audit Report"

Each step is described in the sections that follow.

Establish Renewal Award

Once the renewal has been received, review sponsor reporting requirements to determine whether the renewal should be processed by creating a new award, project, or task or by extending the period on the existing award, project, or task. Any part of the account relationship can be new (i.e., project, task, or award) or all parts of the account relationship can be new (i.e., project, task, and award). Examples of different award, project, and task combinations are provided in "Transfer Labor Schedules Scenarios" section of this procedure.

Refer to the following work instructions for information on setting up the renewal in the RF Oracle business system:

These documents are in EPSS under Grants Management, Course, Establishing Awards, Projects, and Tasks.

Transfer Labor Schedule for Renewal Awards

Once the award/project/task is established, the "RF: Transfer Labor Schedule for Renewal Awards" process is run. The process automatically transfers the labor schedules for those employees with both an assignment end date (from the People File) that is either blank or within the current pay period and a labor distribution end date that is either blank or within the current pay period.


Prerequisites

The following criteria must be met for the "RF: Transfer Labor Schedule for Renewal Awards" process to be successful:

Note: If the employee's people file record has a term date that precedes or has passed the current pay period when the labor distribution process is run (normally Wednesday night of payroll week), the campus will be responsible for transferring the labor schedule for the pay periods that have passed.

Refer to the work instruction "Transfer Labor Schedules for Renewal Awards" in EPSS under Grants Management, Course, Advanced Grants Workshop.

RF: Transfer Labor Schedules for Renewal Awards Audit Report

Once the process is complete, the "RF: Transfer Labor Schedules for Renewal Awards Audit Report" is produced. The report shows the people who have successfully transferred from one award to the renewal award.

Transfer Labor Schedules Scenarios


Same Project (extend project), New Task on Existing Project and New Award

When the Award Number and Task are the different factors, the renewal award start date must be the next calendar day following the preceding award end date. The new task must start the next calendar day following the preceding task end date. The LD effective date on the new line created will be the renewal award start date or the next payroll date whichever is the later.

Note: This is the process used at central office for renewals.
