Contracts and Grants (C&G) Document

Contracts and Grants (C&G) document

There is currently only one inquiry screen available under this channel in the Kuali Financial System (KFS), the Award Lookup.

Document Purpose/Use


Normal access KFS users do not have the ability to create a new award, but they can use the Award Lookup to search for awards based on a variety of criteria, including:

  • Originating Office
  • Originating Office Reference Number (number assigned to award by originating office)
  • Agency Number
  • Award Account Number
  • Subcontractor Number
  • Project Director (Principal Investigator) Name
  • Sub-Fund Group Code

Creating New Account Against Award

Departments create a new expense account for the award, with the award information already pre-populated on the Account document. See the guide on creating a new C&G funded expense account for information on how this process works.

The data on the award is entered by Contracts & Grants Accounting (EFA). Data from awards coordinated by the Office of Research is automatically fed into the Award document from the Sponsored Programs Office (SPO).
