Availability of an IPA Opportunity in the Policy Office, National Science Foundation
The Policy Office, within the Division of Institution and Award Support (DIAS) in the Office of Budget, Finance & Award Management (BFA), announces an opportunity for an individual with demonstrated experience in grant administration and management to assist the Policy Office in strengthening NSF's capabilities in policy formulation and implementation for the Foundation's assistance programs.
eRA@TU Communications Update
Currently the eRA@TU project team maintains a list of people interested in receiving communications about eRA@TU. This has been distributed using the Office of the Senior Vice Provost for Research & Graduate Education email account for things like eRA@TU updates, information about Grants.Gov, training information and more.. We will be moving all of the names from that list to the eRA listserve. This will allow people to “opt in/opt out” much easier than using a manual email list. Look for a verification notice in your email in the coming weeks which will contain instructions if you no longer wish to receive this information.
eRA@TU Users Group Meeting
The eRA@TU project team is working with a group of research administrators across Temple’s campus in planning the first eRA@TU User Group meeting. The goal of this meeting will be to bring eRA@TU users from across the Temple campuses together for a meeting to share best practices, ideas, and feedback for the eRA@TU project. Starting out with a working group to plan the meeting, we will be scheduling an appropriate venue and finalizing the agenda in the coming weeks. If you have any suggestions for topics or just want to let us know you would be attending the meeting, send a short note to firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know of your interest in attending. This will help us plan the proper size room and agenda.
