Electronic Sponsored Research Administration System


eSRA is the new enterprise system being developed for electronic submittal and tracking of proposals as well as non-financial award management.  When fully developed, it will replace RAPID for managing sponsored research proposals at LBNL.  It will provide many features not available in existing systems. The development team of OSPIP, BSA, IT, and the Huron Consulting Group is working to provide a time-saving and easy to use system that also ensures compliance with all applicable policies and procedures.
