Early PTA

A PTA (Project-Task-Award) is set up, in the SeRA Sponsored PTA Manager module, to establish a new project or activity. An Early PTA is an internal option to allow spending in advance of a fully executed award.

When requesting an early PTA, the PI must identify a guarantee PTA which is a non sponsored PTA with sufficient funds whose fund purpose will allow research expenses to be charged in the event that an award does not materialize.
