Some changes to PTA attributes may require a corresponding update in Authority Manager to re-grant proper authorities. Use this resource to understand the potential impact on authority and financial systems and reporting when owning organization and project, task or award manager and owner attributes are changed.
Impacts on Authority
Changes to owning organizations will not auto-revoke authority in Authority Manager.
Here are some things to consider when changing a project's owning organization or principal owner attributes:
- If authority was granted based on the owning organization or principal owner (within an owning organization), then authority may need to be re-granted in Authority Manager.
- If authority was granted based on project, project task or award, authority will not be affected and no re-granting is necessary.
|Authority Impact Based on Type of Grant|
|Type of PTA Attribute Change||Organization||Principal Owner
(within Owning Org)
|Project, Project Task or Award|
|PTA Attribute changes to project, task or award owner (non-sponsored only)||No impact||Authority may need to be regranted||No impact|
|PTA Attribute changes to project, task or award manager||No impact||No impact||No impact|
|PTA Attribute changes to owning organization||Authority may need to be regranted||Authority may need to be regranted||No impact|

Impacts on Financial Reporting
Changes to project, task or award owner attributes affect access to certain financial data and financial reports. For example, faculty set up as the principal owner for a project, task, and/or award, are automatically granted access to the Faculty Financial Inquiry Tool (FFIT) and no further authority grant is needed.
Timing of Updates on Systems and Reports
Changes to PTA Owner attributes occur immediately in Oracle. However, users will not see the changes reflected in all systems immediately because of varied timing of data-refresh schedules.
Below is a table summarizing when PTA Owner attribute changes are reflected in various systems and reporting tools:
|Affected Systems and Reports||When Owner Attribute Changes Are Reflected|
|Commitment Management System (CMS)||Overnight|
|Oracle Business Intelligence (OBI) Reports||Overnight|
|OBI Reports labeled “Real-time”||Immediately|
