Good Afternoon. The UFIRST update on Friday evening, August 21, 2020 at 5:45pm will implement changes across UFIRST. Please visit our website at for a complete list and additional information on these issues.


UFIRST will be unavailable on Friday August 21, 2020 from 5:45-10:00pm.


Two enhancements benefitting campus users in this update are:


1.       For proposals that require Key Personnel to complete the SFI activity, we have added the ability to import answers from a previously completed SFI Activity on another proposal. This will reduce manual entry as these details are often repeated across several proposals. New entries can then be added to the imported list. Use the selector box to find the proposal from which you would like to import those answers.



2.       During the award creation process, when there is an agreement in process or executed for which compliance forms have already been completed, you can now import compliance answers from a related agreement.



Additional changes include streamlined conversion of temp to permanent projects in the award module, enhancements in the Multiple Sponsor modification process, and other bug fixes.
