Why don’t I see the option to initiate a report for my grant?

To initiate your reports, go to “My Tasks” and click on the link for your application. Once there, click on "View Related Items” under the “Examine Related Items" section. You should see links saying “Initiate a Financial Report” and “Initiate a Progress Report.” If not, it may be due to one of these reasons:

  • You already have a report in progress. If you have a financial report in progress, E-Grants will not allow you to initiate another one for the same grant. Check the list of reports to see if you already have one in progress and either submit or cancel that one before you try to start a new one.
  • Your grant is not in “Grant Awarded” status. If your application has not moved through the full grant agreement process, or if you are in the midst of an amendment, your grant may not be in “Grant Awarded” status. If not, E-Grants will not allow you to initiate any reports.
  • You do not have the correct permissions to initiate the report. Viewers and writers are not allowed to initiate any reports and financial officers are only authorized to initiate financial reports. To see what permissions are assigned under an application, go to the “Management Tools” section and select “Add/Edit People.” A list of people associated with the application, including their assigned role, will appear.
