UIRIS Routing Forms Down 4/8/2016 – 4/11/2016

The UIRIS routing form system will be down for a major system upgrade from 5:00pm Thursday, April 7 to 8:00am Monday, April 11. During this time, you will not able to create, edit, or approve proposal routing forms or non-monetary routing forms. In addition, you will not be able to access previously submitted routing forms from Workflow or UIRIS. 

What This Means for Routing

If you have any up-coming proposal due dates or were planning to route something to the Division of Sponsored Programs during the scheduled upgrade, you will need to get to it us – meaning gathering all the necessary approvals – before 5:00pm on 4/7/2016. Additionally, if you will want to refer to an existing routing form during the downtime, you will need to create a PDF copy in advance.

Expect Delays

We strongly encourage you to get completed routing forms to DSP before 4/7, rather than waiting until the following week, as we anticipate being busy with additional upgrade-related work on Monday, 4/11/2016.  Please allow extra time for grant/contract review and award processing as we transition to the new system.

The UIRIS upgrade will facilitate concurrent, multiple reviews within DSP, transition to a fully electronic system, and provide the research community access to detailed statuses of their proposals or agreements using the existing DSP Research Tracker. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at or call the helpdesk 5-2123.

Thank you,

The University of Iowa Division of Sponsored Programs
