The interactive Lead Unit Award Summary report combines a high-level summary of lead unit award activity for a selected period. Investigator, Account and Award IDs, and dollar amounts will be included, with the ability to view information based on Finalized Date.
This report is designed to answer the following questions:
- For our college or unit, what awards did we receive during a specific Finalized Date range and what was the total amount for each?
- For a particular PI, what awards were received during a specific Finalized Date and what was the total amount for each?
- Per Finalized Date, what is the total amount awarded, what is the total amount obligated, what is the total change amount?
You can view the report as a PDF, HTML or export to Excel.
