UnivRS: Navigating UnivRS - Pre- and Post-Award Module


The University Research System (UnivRS) is a secure, web-based system that provides opportunities for the research community within the University of Saskatchewan to collaborate on research projects. It serves as a central repository from which other systems can draw consistent and up-to-date information about research related projects at the University of Saskatchewan.

The Pre-and Post-Award Management module records and monitors the complete lifecycle of a research grant or contract from submission to project close-out.  It facilitates the online approval process at the University of Saskatchewan and serves as a central repository for project-related documents.

This workshop will take participants through how to find specific records, create reports and electronically approve contracts, agreements and amendments in UnivRS.
