Making a Molehill out of a Mountain: Automating OUHSC’s Grants Pre-Award Process

Track: Exhibitor

Session Number: 10918
Date: Tue, Mar 5th, 2024
Time: 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM

Description:

For more than 10 years, the University of Oklahoma’s Health Sciences Center used a third-party application to manage the complexities of its grants pre-award process…and bit the bullet each year to pay the steep annual maintenance. All of that has changed with their new PeopleSoft-based Pre-Award system that has made the process easier, faster, and without that pricy maintenance bill.

Named SoonerTrack II, OUHSC’s new system is an enterprise system that routes and manages Agreements and Grant proposals. The PeopleTools-based, workflow-enabled solution was developed in partnership with Gideon Taylor using the GT eForms bolt-on within OUHSC’s PeopleSoft Financials system. The new system has dramatically improved efficiency, eliminated duplicate data entry, increased compliance, and reduced the average grant application submission time by 75%.

If you’re involved with grants processing, you’ll want to hear OUHSC’s journey: where they started, how they came to create a PeopleSoft-based pre-award solution, and the life-changing results they’ve seen!
