Alert Module Pilot
What is the purpose?
The Alert Module allows Office of Policy for Extramural Research Administration (OPERA) users to enter and manage alerts associated with NIH grants. These alerts may have bearing on special award terms, require a hold to be put on an award, or be purely informational in nature. There will initially be a small number of carefully monitored alerts since AM will begin as a pilot.
What are the features?
The Alert Module provides:
- Active "Alerts" associated with a grant on the Alert Page within GM.
- Alerts display on the Award Worksheet Report (AWR) for affected grants.
What are the benefits?
- Enables OPERA to inform GM users of issues affecting grant awards in a timely manner.
- Allows OPERA the flexibility to author, edit, and associate alerts on an as-needed basis.
Who can use the Alert Module Pilot?
The Alert Module is restricted to authorized OPERA users with specified roles. However, users with GM access will be able to view alerts for affected grants in Grants Management and on the Award Worksheet Report (AWR).
