Who manages my award?

Aggregate, or “Ag” codes are how work is assigned in Sponsored Programs Services.  Loosely, ag codes are assigned to a group of awards belonging to the same or similar sponsors.  The ag code for a specific budget-project may be found in AIS Balances, under page 5 of report 15X.

 

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.
