This workshop will provide an overview of SUMMIT for reviewing your grant budget, presented by Joe Hession from UMASS Admin. and Finance. Please come with specific budget questions or email them to me in advance, so that we can include in our presentation. We have a great group signed up already, representing faculty members as well as finance professionals and administrators from all over the campus.
Principal Investigators are encouraged to bring their laptops and budget questions. We suggest that you bookmark this page in advance. (http://www.umass.edu/af/systems/peoplesoft.htm). Feeling adventurous?...go to that page and log in - click on “SUMMIT” in the left hand column.
The "I'm a PI, Now What Program?" is designed for new principal investigators and will present strategies for both managing administrative tasks and staying focused on the really important piece...THE RESEARCH! It includes information on managing budgets, subcontracts and consultants, and methods for keeping your research on track and publicizing results.
