Electronic Research Administration Systems

An overview of the ERA market and system evaluation process

This white paper provides best practices when navigating the ERA system vendor landscape and determining the best fit system for your institution's needs.

Electronic Research Administration

Most research sponsors, including the federal government, have moved from paper application and award management processes to online systems. In response, university administrators have implemented Electronic Research Administration (ERA) systems to increase efficiency, security, and ease-of-use, as well as to align university processes with those of research sponsors.

This white paper explores how chief research officers can better navigate the evolving ERA landscape.

This whitepaper was first published in 2016 and re-published in 2018. This updated resource offers additional information on compliance modules and includes a new evaluation framework to help CROs and staff determine which functions and components to prioritize when implementing new ERA tools.
