RMS Transition – Changes to WUSM Space Allocation Information in AIS

Published April 24, 2018

When WashU goes live on May 7, 2018, with the Research Management System’s (RMS) Proposal Development (PD) & Proposal Tracking (PT) modules, there will be changes to the School of Medicine’s space allocation data collection process.

Effective 5/4/18, Friday 4:00 p.m., the Proposal Development System (PDS) will change to inquiry-only. As a result, there will be a new AIS location for space data entry. In addition, we are changing the required timing of space allocation data collection. Effective 5/7/18, when RMS is live, departments will no longer be required to enter space allocation data during the preaward process, but rather at the time of award.

    • Prior to account set-up, you will be required to enter space allocation data for the prime award and each allocation after an award is received.
    • The space allocation data entry point will move from:
      • Current: AIS > Research Administration > Proposal Development, to
      • New: AIS > Research Administration > Space Allocation. (Click here to see a screen shot)
  • It will be the responsibility of the department to ensure space allocation data is accurate for all of their prime and allocation accounts.
