In an effort to streamline the sources of financial data for sponsored projects, plans are in place to decommission the PI Dashboard in Infoporte effective January 10, 2023.  The Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP) and Information Technology Systems (ITS) developed a more robust and detailed reporting tool for sponsored projects with the release of RAM Reports. RAM Reports provides both campus and central offices with the same view of financial data to improve transparency and streamline processes with sponsored projects’ financial monitoring and reporting. Any user with an active Onyen who annually accepts the Terms of use for University Administrative Systems Policy can access RAM Reports.

Benefits of Using Enhanced RAM Reports

The RAM Reports offer campus and central offices the same view of financial data currently on the PI Dashboard with improved functionality such as easy hyperlink access to related ConnectCarolina and RAMSeS data. Having one report to look at will improve transparency and streamline the processes involved in financial monitoring and reporting for contracts and grants. A few highlights of the RAM Reports:

  • Intuitive and easy navigation to views of overall award information and transactions versus projects.
  • The new Personnel Details view Offers several personnel reporting options, including projected salaries and access to expenditures for all individuals down to the specific transaction.
  • Access to financial information at both the project and award levels,
  • Provides detailed financial expenditures and projections across all categories and includes hyperlinks to transaction details in ConnectCarolina or RAMSeS.
  • Reports are downloadable to Excel.

Learn even more about what RAM Reports has to offer on the RAM Reports webpage and guidance document. Importantly, OSP and ITS continuously strive to provide enhanced functionality in RAM Reports and welcome user feedback. We encourage all to provide recommendations for RAM Reports using the feedback form.
