PI Portal

The PI Portal is a web-based application that pulls information from PeopleSoft Grants to allow principal investigators access to important information necessary to manage their awards. The portal is accessed by logging into AccessUH.

Features

Proposal Transmittal Routing
Located on the top left of the portal, this access allows PIs to create, approve, view and route transmittals to the appropriate University officials for the necessary approvals to submit a proposal.

For help with the transmittal module, download the PeopleSoft Grants Transmittal User Guide.

The Cost Center Dashboard
Provides a list of both department and project award cost centers that the PI manages. The cost center displays the financial information posted to the PeopleSoft system general ledger. The screen displays live information posted as of the current date.  Purchase card and travel card information not yet reconciled and posted to cost center, encumbrances other than payroll, and purchase requisitions not yet paid in the system will not be displayed. The PI must work with departmental staff to incorporate these encumbrances in the balance shown on the general ledger. 

For detailed assistance with reviewing cost centers, download the Cost Center Dashboard Tip Sheet.

Equipment Search 
The link for this search is located on the bottom left of the portal. This feature provides a searchable page which can identify all equipment purchased on grants that might be in use on an existing project or previously used on an expired award.  If the equipment is not currently being used at full capacity by the awarded PI, researchers have the opportunity to share the equipment for use on pending or new projects.
