What is PGM?
Project and Grants Management (PGM) is a module within Oracle Financials Cloud (OFC) that allows users to identify projects and associated awards. Simply put, PGM is a way to group together and report on detailed costs, streamlining processes for maintaining information.
Our scope currently includes Sponsored Projects (encompassing external Grants and Contracts), Faculty Funds (including Startup, Retention, and Discretionary funding allocated to faculty), and DFSS or Capital projects.
If a project meets any of this criteria, it should be tracked in PGM:
Benefits of PGM
- Access to the most up-to-date information, allowing you to better serve your departmental constituents
- Reduced redundancy of data entry
- Simplified reconciliation process
- Integration with other campus systems
- Expanded functionalities for indirect cost generation, budgetary control, lien/commitments, and reporting (e.g. dashboards)
Future Design Examples
As a reminder, our design focuses on the Award - Project – Task relationship.
Non-Sponsored Faculty Awards
The PGM team is working to ensure future processes are consistent, streamlined, and meet the needs of campus. Currently, we are completing the design for future-state tracking of Faculty Discretionary funding and working with our Business Process Design team to identify areas of improvement. We look forward to additional interaction with department users to gather feedback as these designs are finalized.
In addition, 77 departments on campus are participating in shadow system data clean-up activities, working closely with the PGM team to identify, clean up, and collect appropriate departmental data for conversion into OFC.
