OGC announced in July 2017 the use of new PeopleSoft Project life cycle statuses. At this time, those status changes are still updated manually by your Post Award Administrator. Coming in the fall of 2018, these statuses will start changing automatically within PeopleSoft at specific time points after the project end date. We will also be implementing a new control structure behind these statuses to help ensure expenses are posted to the project timely and within the project dates.
Over the next few months, there will be much more information to come on this modification to assess readiness and help you prepare for the change. Please review the status descriptions and future controls listed below. Note these status controls will not be put in place for older projects that are being worked as part of OGC’s closeout initiative.
