Riverside, Ca –

Computing & Communications and the Accounting Office are pleased to announce several modifications to the Principal Investigator Web Reporting System (PIWRS) that will assist with departmental financial management responsibilities. The following enhancements will be implemented on June 22, 2015.

  1. Payroll Projection details include both monthly-paid and biweekly paid employees as well as a more refined system of projecting benefits. In addition, PIWRS coordinators will be able to edit projection amounts on a month-by-month basis.
  2. The Shared Fund reporting option has been enhanced to allow for a more streamlined process of creating and managing shared fund entries for non-contract and grant funds (e.g. 199XX, gifts, etc.). Non-salary projections can now be linked to existing Shared Fund entries.
  3. Improvements to the PIWRS menu and navigation.

Please direct feedback regarding these enhancements to piwrsfeedback@ucr.edu. Additional information on the PIWRS system is available on the support site at cnc.ucr.edu/piwrs.
