Account Set Up

Upon receiving a sponsor award notice or update to an award, the OSP Awards Management Team initiates the account set-up, or makes changes to existing accounts. OSP Pre-Award Operations will set up new or make changes to existing accounts in GMAS (Grants Management Application Suite; the system of record for all sponsored accounts at Harvard University). After the account(s) and award information has been completed, an Action Memo is generated notifying Department Administrators and others on the project administration team that the accounts have been created or modified as needed, and all account information is sent to the General Ledger (GL).
