Dear PIs and Campus Research Administrators,

The revised budget work sheet is now available in SPA Forms Library<https://www.uvm.edu/spa/forms-library> and can be used immediately.

Details:


  *   Begin using new purpose/activity codes in proposal submissions effective immediately.


  *   SPA Award Acceptance team will continue to award utilizing old codes for all awards that will be counted as FY 19 awards.


  *   SPA Award Acceptance team will use new codes for all FY 20 awards, whether they were proposed with the old codes or the new codes.


  *   PeopleSoft will contain all new purpose/activity codes available for entry as of July 1.
Dear PIs and Campus Research Administrators,

*         PeopleSoft will contain all new purpose/activity codes available for entry as of July 1.


*         InfoEd will add new purpose codes to PT to enable tracking both proposals submitted starting July 1 with the new purpose codes and FY 20 awards.

Why Selecting and Accurate Purpose/Activity Code is Important:

Purpose codes define the primary activity of the proposed project, which drives the F&A rate used when budgeting, which drives the function code used in the project spending chartstrings, which drives accurate reporting of sponsored project awards and research expenditures.

In addition to the revised budget worksheet, SPA's Prepare and Submit webpage now includes a complete list of Purpose/Activity Codes, definitions and examples<https://www.uvm.edu/spa/prepare-submit>.

If you have any questions, please contact your SPA RA<https://www.uvm.edu/spa/departmental-assignments>.

Thank You,
Julie


FOR PLANNING PURPOSES:  SPA will be on an off-site retreat July 2, 2019, please plan accordingly.
