InfoEd Grants Management Software System to Become Mandatory for Proposal Preparation and Internal Approval Routing Beginning September 1, 2014

06/10/2014 · Comments Off

In December, 2013, the University of Nevada, Reno (UNR) implemented grants management system, InfoEd, for use by faculty and staff in managing grant activities. A major function of InfoEd is to provide an electronic portal where UNR faculty and staff can prepare and route grant proposals for internal approvals. Since December 2013, over 400 UNR faculty and staff members have received training on preparing and routing grant proposals in InfoEd.

Beginning September 1, 2014, all UNR grant proposals must be prepared in InfoEd and routed for internal approvals in InfoEd. If you are a UNR faculty or staff member who prepares grant proposals, a UNR chair, director, dean or vice president who approves grant proposals or a department administrator who needs access to grant-related information, it is important that you receive appropriate InfoEd training.
