Click Portal implementation
CLICK is here!
SUNY Pre-Award and Compliance System (PACS) is a multi-year
collaboration created to support investigators and students
along with compliance and research administrative staff by giving
them a new administrative tool - the Click Portal. UB has led the
system wide effort and was the first SUNY campus to go-live with
Click IRB in the Fall of 2015.
Click automates the submission, review and approval
processes while managing all major administrative
aspects of the research and compliance lifecycle – from
proposal development and submission through compliance checks,
negotiations, award setup and award management to eventual project
closeout. This system integrates the
following aspects of grants management into a single system
using the following modules:
Our goal is to reduce the administrative burden on
researchers so they can devote their time to research while also
assisting SUNY campuses in generating a higher
volume of quality, compliant, collaborative and multi-disciplinary
grant proposals. In following the research administration process
from beginning to end, this platform allows us to achieve a
new level of uniformity and efficiency, while also producing
valuable data analytics that can guide future decisions.
Training is underway! We offer scheduled training sessions in
specific active Modules, and we can work to schedule special group
training sessions upon request.
How will Click benefit UB's researchers and research administrators?
Reduce effort and processing time for IRB, Safety and IACUC
protocol creation and submission
Reduce effort and processing time for FCOI's
Grants Management that provides a consistent look and feel
across all modules
Efficient development of Research Agreements
Enhanced reporting capabilities for all aspects of Research
A user interface that is intuitive and easy to use
