Further information on the Internal Pre-Submission Clearance can be found here (LogIn required).

Effective July 2015

Transfer into the FIS (= Projekt anlegen): a check routine prevents the project end date to be before the project start date and the project thus not appearing in SAP (often caused by typos)

Menu item "Workflow Info" renamed "Stellungnahmen" (= Comments)

If the project type is changed, an already entered funding programme / sponsor is deleted, to prevent forwarding to the wrong service unit (FoS, ZIB, ZfL)

Notifier: added project title and application-ID (= Antrag-ID)

Comments of Head of Department: "Approved" as the default option in order to prevent forwarding to VR Research & International Research Collaboration by mistake
Comments Fields: display max. number of characters and clear error message when exceeding
Strategic Projects: notice upon picking the funding programme that approval of the Rectorate is mandatory before submission
Adding new external partners: adding a partner and saving his role can be done in one step now
Display of external partners: arranged more clearly
Application Overview: type of research (= Art der Vergabe) is now displayed as well
Approval stage (= Genehmigungsphase): information on eventual reduction of funding as well as reduction of services rendered are displayed under "Comments" (= Stellungnahmen)
Affirmation of BOKU-partners: the participating employee is no longer listed here, but only the concerned Head of Institute and Head of Department, so it is clear, whose consent has to be obtained here
The Centre for Education (ZfL) was added to the overview tables' legend (ZfL -> supports nat. education / mobility programmes)
Applications forwarded to Head of Department remain visible for Head of Institute under "Forwarded" (= Weitergeleitet)
The menu item "All applications"  (= Alle Anträge) now displays all applications, no matter what stage they are currently in
Core data (= Stammdaten): Tooltip on adding further BOKU organizational units is phrased more clearly
Form "Project Volume" (= Projektvolumen): direct links to FAQs and staff cost calculator inserted; links open in a new window
Comments of Head of Department: in case of strategic projects a pointer is now displayed, indicating which issues have to be addressed in addition to the usual statement
Selection of Funding Programme / Sponsor (= Förderprogramm / Hauptgeldgeber): note added, what to do if a required funding programme / sponsor is not yet in the system; clearer explanation of the two alternative selecting options
