Tracking a Subaward

Department administrators can monitor the status of a subaward's setup or amendment using both the SeRA and Oracle Financials systems.

Subaward setup process

Requisition Submission & Review

Once a subaward requisition is submitted, please monitor the status of the requisition in Oracle until all departmental approvals have been completed and the requisition has routed to OSR.

To view a subaward requisition’s status in Oracle:

  1. Log in to Oracle Financials
  2. Click on SU Inquiry Tools and Forms
  3. Click on Requisition and Purchase Orders Query
  4. Search by the Requisition Number
  5. Look at the Requisition Approval List

For PTA change requests, please ensure there is enough outstanding commitment on the specific line you want to shift funding from before submitting the PTA change request requisition.

  1. Log in to Oracle Financials
  2. Click on SU Inquiry Tools and Forms
  3. Click on Requisition and Purchase Orders Query

From Subaward Requisition to Fully Executed Subaward Agreement

Once OSR receives the fully departmentally approved subaward requisition your OSR Contract and Grant Officer (CGO) will review the requisition.  Assuming the requisition is complete and includes all the requisite documents, the CGO will draft the subaward agreement and begin the subaward negotiation process with the subaward entity. You can track the status of the subaward negotiation by viewing the comments in the relevant SeRA subaward transaction.
