PeopleSoft is currently developing a pre-award and post-award
GRANTS module which may be available in beta form in 2nd quarter
1999.  UMich is now implementing the PS General ledger in version 6
which required tremendous special programming to manage even simple
sponsored  programs aspects, for example it originally did not
allow for indirect costs and allowed only a single fiscal year for
accounts (project/grants).  Imagine setting up all of your
sponsored projects to begin July 1 !   HR is to come up in 2000
As I understand it, the  financial system and the HR
system will not share a common data
base until well into the next century; nor are any of the
modules web based.

UMIch is participating in the GRANTS development with
a half-dozen other schools and we should know more of what
to expect at the end of June.
