ASU’s Enterprise Research Administration system provides an integrated platform for the administration of research and sponsored projects at ASU. Development and submission of proposals, management of awards and integrity and assurance activities are managed in one system allowing for efficient and effective support of our investigators. ASU’s ERA provides for streamlined business processes and reduces the effort required to manage our externally funded projects.

ERA also houses the Master Store, an internal database of unit information that ERA uses to:

·         Determine approval workflows for funding proposals

·         Determine how to set-up and activate sponsored awards and accounts

·         Determine how post-award email notifications will be disseminated

·         Drive institutional reporting

Access to the Master Store is provided to ERA Unit Administrators. Unit Administrators can reference the ERA Unit Administrator Guide to learn how to make unit information updates to the Master Store. To request the Unit Administrator see the Systems Access page.

ERA proposals

All ASU sponsored projects are initially entered in the system as an ERA Funding Proposal. Internal forms, departmental reviews and approvals, and (in some cases) submission to funding sponsors takes place in the Proposals system within ERA Grants.

Current and pending tool

The “Current and Pending Tool” was developed to assist Research Advancement staff with the creation of current and pending documents quickly and accurately. While the tool specifically creates NSF- and NIH-formatted documents, the information provided in the tool can be used to meet other sponsors’ requirements for information on awards and pending proposals.

ERA awards

Post-award sponsored projects administration is managed in ERA Awards. Users can access award and sponsored account information.

ERA award change requests

The Award Change Request is an activity in ERA that users can run to initiate requests for award changes including No Cost Extensions, budget changes, etc.

ERA agreements

ERA agreements is an electronic gateway for the submission, review, and negotiation of incoming and outgoing agreements for research at Arizona State University.

ERA external organization requests

To request the addition of a new sponsor, subrecipient institution, or other external organization in ERA, users will need to follow the process for ERA External Organization Requests.

ERA system status

ERA maintenance is scheduled the third Saturday of each month, 3:30 p.m. – 9:30 p.m. Arizona Time.
