Subaward status updates

The SPA Subaward Team will update the appropriate Kuali Research Subaward record assigned to that particular agreement. While this update does not replace email communications between you and SPA staff, our intent is to use this process in Kuali Research for real-time contract status inquiries and updates in order to effectively and efficiently respond to the numerous status requests SPA receives.

This process was initiated March 1, 2021. Please continue to use email to inquire as to status updates, if the Kuali record is not currently updated.

You should receive the Subaward ID number once the Subaward team creates the Subaward record. Search using the Subaward ID if you have it. If not, search on the Subrecipient (other organization) and/or Purchase Order number (if modification) and/or Requisitioner User Name (UMB PI).  You will need to use the magnifying glass icon to look up the Requisitioner User Name.


From the search results, select the relevant record.  In the Actions column (far left), click "open".


In the subaward record, click on the Comments, Notes & Attachments tab. Updates will be in the Notes subpanel. If updates exist, there will be a number after the word "Notes".  Click on "show" to open the panel and review the notes. Attachments, if any, will be in the Attachments subpanel.  Click "show" to open the subpanel and click "View" to open an attachment.
