Routing & Approval
RAMS grantsERA provides an institutional routing page for a quick look at the most important elements of the application and collection of institutional information not included in the application.
Routing allows everyone who needs to approve the application before submission to view and make comments on the application. Each approver also makes the decision to Approve or Disapprove the application.
An e-mail notification is sent to the Authorizing Officials to alert them an application needs approval. For security and data integrity, the application data stays in the central database so the Official must log into the system to record their approval. Routing can be either a sequential or parallel process.
