Spartan Electronic Research Administration (SeRA)

Research Information Technology (RIT) group

In order to serve the growing technological needs of UNCG’s research community The Office of Research and Engagement has established the Research Information Technology (RIT) group. The purpose of the RIT group is to provide tech support to The Office of Research and Engagement as well as the units and centers housed within. These areas of support typically include but are not limited to hardware, software, and web development. Learn more about RIT here.

SeRA enterprise tools allow UNCG researchers to submit and track proposals and other research applications online.


RAMSeS, the Research Administration Management System and electronic Submission system, is primarily used for proposal and award management. Includes proposal development, submission, electronic routing and approval, and electronic document management. Also includes award setup and tracking, financial integration, award reporting, and closeout.


IRBIS, the Institutional Review Board Information System, is used to track and manage Human Subjects Research data. System records receipt of protocol applications and allows for review determination and management and agenda management. Also automatically generates notifications to investigators.

COI Training

COI Training, or Conflict of Interest Training, ensures that UNCG researchers have foundational knowledge of financial conflict of interest, are familiar with new definitions and requirements issued by the federal government and reflected in UNCG’s COI policy, and understand the COI monitoring and reporting process at UNCG.


AIR, the Activities, Interest, and Relationships system, serves as a portal to manage all disclosure and request forms related to Conflicts of Interest and Commitment. You may access any COI disclosure form or EPAP request form through this website. Each university research project (sponsored or unsponsored) requires Project-Specific Conflict of Interest Disclosure forms filed in a timely manner for each university employee, student, or trainee involved in the design, conduct, or reporting of the research project for whom one or more of the answers posed in the disclosure form is “yes.” The university PI is obligated to ensure that any potential conflict of interest that exists in relation to the research project is reported as required by our university Conflict of Interest and Commitment Policy. Faculty and staff in certain administrative positions responsible for resource allocation, personnel decisions, business contracts, purchasing, technology transfer, and other sensitive activities are required to complete an annual questionnaire regarding external relationships that might create or be perceived to create conflicts of interest with their university responsibilities.
