All SPARTA Grants 10.5 modules will go live at 9 a.m. Monday, Aug. 14. Training materials are available beginning today (Aug. 10).
In preparation for the switch, SPARTA Grants will go offline beginning Friday, Aug. 11 at 5 p.m. All draft proposals will remain in draft form and will be available upon completion of the upgrade to SPARTA Grants 10.5. All budgets will default to percentages prior to the upgrade and those in draft will be editable upon upgrade and you can change the percentages on those draft budgets to months.
Your management center will communicate your deadlines for the week prior to go live.
SPARTA Grants 10.5 will be familiar to current users of the SPARTA Grants as this is an upgrade only. However, this contains some significant upgrades and should function more smoothly so you can submit funding proposals and track their journey through the system. Some of the changes include the following:
Budgeting can now be done in either percentages or calendar months; and
Export control questions have been modified.
