Enhancements to The Research Portal Planned for March

Coming in March 2017, Northwestern Information Technology is adding a new subcontract management feature on The Research Portal, a web-based tool that presents financial data for sponsored and non-sponsored research accounts.

The new feature will now allow researchers to view a list of all subcontracts for each award, including value, balances, and status in the negotiation process, and display of burn rate for each subcontract. The March release will be rounded out by additional enhancements gleaned from focus groups conducted over winter quarter.

The Research Portal is a collaborative effort between Northwestern Information Technology, the Office for Research, the Office for Sponsored Research, Accounting Services for Research and Sponsored Programs (ASRSP), Financial Operations, the McCormick School of Engineering, Feinberg School of Medicine, and Weinberg College of Arts & Sciences.

University researchers interested learning more about this research administration tool are encouraged to explore The Research Portal.
