Sponsored Projects Data Reporting Tools

The Office of the Vice Provost for Research (OVPR) provides four reporting tools to support research administration:

  • RA Dashboard
  • PI Dashboard
  • Sponsored Project Portal
  • Brio Portal

These tools, and information for accessing them, are described below.

Obtaining Access to the Reporting Tools

Principle Investigators (PI) and Account Managers (AM)

PI’s are automatically provided access to their own projects and accounts in the four reporting tools.


Administrators must request access to the RA Dashboard and Sponsored Projects Portal reporting tools using the Sponsored Projects Data Access Request Form. Detailed instructions are included with the form. Please direct questions to (607) 255-5014 or

To use the financial aspects of the reporting tools below, administrators must request access to the Financial Dashboards managed by the Division of Financial Affairs (DFA). See the KFS Access Requests page or contact for information.

Administrators wishing to proxy or "Act-As" a PI or AM in the RA Dashboard or the PI Dashboard need to request this access from their Approved Authorizer. This is often used to allow staff to support faculty with the PI Dashboard or to provide access to a faculty member's detailed labor expenses when the user wouldn't otherwise have access.
