New Research Portal Salary Feature

In collaboration with the Office for Research, Northwestern IT is pleased to announce the release of a new feature in the Northwestern Research Portal designed to help manage how people are paid from grant and other accounts.

The Research Portal now provides the ability to view the monthly salary, including payroll transfers, charged to sponsored and non-sponsored projects.

The changes allow users to see:

  • Salary information for faculty, staff members, and students
  • Monthly pay amounts for each person paid from a given project
  • Monthly pay amounts charged to each project for a given person
  • What percentage of a person’s base salary was charged to each project
  • Journals retroactively applied to the journal period

About the Research Portal 

A one-stop-shop for researchers and their staff to obtain research administration information, the Northwestern Research Portal displays data from multiple systems in a user-friendly way, allowing faculty members self-service access to drill into details of the project information they are most interested in.
