Grant Management (in HER and Public Sector)

Hello Everyone,

We are trying to built a project in Higher Education & Research and we faced some difficulties while studying about Grant Management.

We couldn't exactly define the relationship between the Grants Management (in SAP Easy Access Menu > Accounting > Public Sector Management > Grants Management) and the Grant Management in HER. Also we are unsure about how we can use the document in HER- Wiki Sdn website "Grants Management for Grantee Organizations". Do we need to use Grant Management under the Publc Sector headline too or is Grant Management (in HE&R) enough for us to manage grants?

Best Regards,

Ay┼če S.

    Dear Ayse,

    To build a relationship between SLCM and GM, use the Grants Management with SLCM system option in Student accounting.

    Grants Management (GM) provides flexibility to account for funds on a fiscal period basis other than the University's FY and shows financial information form a sponsor's perspective. GM enables end-users to:

    • Plan, budget, identify, obtain, and record all funding related to received grants

    • Plan, budget, identify, obtain, schedule, perform, and record the tasks and activities related managing the sponsored programs and furthering the sponsor's and organization's objectives

    • Differentiate between eligible and ineligible costs

    • Bill and record sponsor amounts

    • Record and report all related costs, revenues, and required statistical information

    Document on SDN addresses the requirement of customers who want to specify a Funds Management period to allocate released GM budget using the FM distribution key in the GM budget workbench.

    If you are supposed to handle all the above activities, i believe, then you should use Grants Management for Grantee Management from Public sector domain.

    Hope to get more clarifications on the same from other experts too.
