October 2016

On October 14, we held our first Open Forum in the new academic year. We heard from Joseph Zurba, Andrew Malone, Rita Bergemann, and SPA. Below you will find a list of topics covered during this event and presentation materials, where available. Please let us know if you have any questions or suggestions.

  • Joseph Zurba talked about new security initiatives that will impact all HMS community members, including 2-step verification and endpoint security software. You can also find more information on the website. Please contact Joe if you have any questions or concerns.

  • Andrew Malone gave us a preview of the upcoming December release. This release focuses on budget entry function That means that you will be able to enter and edit GL budgets through GMAS. If you have any feedback about GMAS, please contact GMAS Support

  • If you have not had a chance to attend OBI training, please be reminded that CREW reports for grants management will be decomissioned in just two weeks. For details please look for future RAD issues or browse through past issues here.

  • SPA presented a new form, Deadline Exception Request. In the past, we relied on emails to communicate about proposals that would not meet the 5-busines day rule. This form streamlines this process and eliminates communication bottlenecks. Please use this form as soon as you know a proposal will not meet SPA deadline. If you have any questions about using the form, please contact Kelly. If you have problems using the form, or suggestions for changes to the form, please contact Ivona.
