Grant Management Overview
PRF implemented a new system for proposal submission and grant administration in 2021. Grant administration activities such as fulfulling grant requirements (e.g, financial and personnel reports) or submitting change requests are performed by accessing the detail screen of the application that resulted in the awarded grant. Access to the PRF Portal requires a ACS ID and an approved registration. To gain access to a specific grant at your institution, please submit an email request to PRFSupport@acs.org. Please include the name of the Principal Investigator and the grant # in this email.
The menu bar at the top of all screens provides quick access to the home screen (house icon, Figure 1, Item #5), organization, contacts, and applications. Additional information on managing your grant is available from the links on various portal pages (e.g., Figure 1, Items #1 & 2). Tabs containing information on each of the PRF Grant Programs are accessible on the PRF Portal Home Page (Figure 1, Item #4). Sign-out and other user profile information is accessible from the pull-down located at the upper right corner of the screen (Figure 1, Item #6).
