Who manages my award?

Award Groups (formerly Ag Codes) are how we assign awards to accountants in Sponsored Programs Services.  Loosely, award groups are a collection of awards belonging to the same or similar sponsors.  The award group for a specific award may be found on the award header in Workday.  Likewise, the Award Contract Owner listed on an award header in Workday is the SPS Accountant assigned to manage that award.

How are we doing?

We encourage the WSU system to share feedback on SPS’s performance.  Are we meeting your needs? Did a member of our team go above and beyond to support you? Do you have feedback or ideas about how and where we could improve?

Please share with us via our Jira Feedback Service Desk.
