SeRA Central Office Requests

Main content start

SeRA Central Office Requests allows department administrators to submit requests to their central sponsored research office from within the SeRA system. 

Central Office Requests include: custom forms and fields for different request types to facilitate department entry, the ability to add attachments relating to the request directly to the request form, being able to easily search and see when a request was submitted, what information was provided in a request, to whom a request was assigned, and the current status of a request.

Please do NOT use a Central Office Request to follow up on the status of an existing SeRA transaction (proposal, award, PTA, Central Office Request etc.).  Rather, please look up the relevant transaction in SeRA to view the latest information, and, if needed, follow up with the relevant transaction’s current assignee via email.
