Logon to BEN Reports

BEN Reports is an easy-to-use, web-based query tool that allows authorized users to run standard reports against the University's data warehouse using a web browser. The reports provide summary and detail financial and grant information in the following areas:

Financial reports

  • Budget/Actual Variance
  • General Ledger Revenue/ Expense Detail
  • RCM Category Comparison

Salary management reports

  • Employee Payments by Fund
  • Employee Payments by Individual

Sponsored project reports

  • GRAM (Grant Reporting and Management) - year-to-date balances by project budget year on active grants with links to supporting transactional and employee payment detail. Expenditures are grouped into categories customarily used in reporting to project sponsors
  • Protocol Status - approval and status information about research protocols

Access to BEN Reports is granted automatically to some individuals. Principal investigators are given access to GRAM and protocol reports for their own projects. BEN Financials and Salary Management system users are given access to financial reports, salary management reports, and GRAM to view the data they are authorized to view in BEN Financials and Salary Management; they must request access for protocol reports.

Individuals needing access to BEN Reports: Please consult your departmental Business Administrator or the senior business officer in your School or Center. You will need to submit a signed authorization form and attend any required training.
