Grants

1. Will Principal Investigators have access to view grant activity in Ignite?
Yes, PIs will see their own grant portfolios at the summary level. For any questions related to your grant portfolio, please contact your URA (https://www.baylor.edu/research/resources/index.php?id=963880 ).

2. Will Principal Investigators be trained on using Ingite?
All employees can view the Ignite training options at https://www.baylor.edu/ignite/index.php?id=965440. Specific training for PIs will not be provided at this time. For any questions related to your grant portfolio, please contact your URA (https://www.baylor.edu/research/resources/index.php?id=963880 ).

3. Will pre-go-live grant expenses be visible in Ignite?
Yes, grant expenses prior to June 1, 2020 will be loaded into each project as a lump sum by expenditure type. Related details for each underlying expense made before May 31, 2020, will be available for a limited time in TRAX, and off-line in accordance with record retention procedures.

4. What if I have a question about grant expenses in Ignite?
Please contact your URA immediately with any grant expense-related questions.

5. Why aren't payroll charges visible in Ignite?
Payroll charges for May, June, and July, 2020, are posting slowly due to the conversion process. Financial reports due to sponsors during conversion will be handled on a case-to-case basis. Please review May, June, and July expenses carefully. Please contact your URA if you have any questions about payroll charges on your project.

6. How will multiple year grants be handled in Ignite?
If the award is subject to expanded authorities (Streamlined Noncompeting Application Procedures, or SNAP), it will be given a single POET AF string for the duration of the project. Multi-year non-SNAP awards will be given a new POET AF each year. It is the responsibility of the PI, the buyer, and the URA to know each POET AF and manage award expenses appropriately. Prior approval for carryforward or advance account status for continuation years may be made using the UPAS form.
