Proposal Management Access

U-M faculty, staff, and students can log into eResearch Proposal Management (eRPM) with a uniqname and a UMICH password, then an eRPM account is automatically created for you.

  • You are given the PI & Project Team role (you can create proposals).
  • If you need to be able to review proposals for your department, contact the Research Unit Liaison from your unit to obtain access to a Reviewer role.

Existing eRPM users can create an account for anyone who has a uniqname and a UMICH password, an MCommunity Sponsored account, or a Friend account. See Create an eResearch Account for instructions. If you are completing a proposal for a faculty member who is not yet at U-M (they do not have a uniqname and a UMICH password), first, it is recommended that they get a Sponsored affiliate account.

Important! If a faculty member previously used a friend account to access eRPM and now has a uniqname and password, please request an ITS service ticket for the eRPM team to merge account data.  If the faculty member initially started with a Sponsored account, then no action is needed.

For External (non-UM) users:

  • If you will be requesting an eRA Commons ID associated with U-M, you need to have a Sponsored affiliate account.
  • If you are using a Friend account to access eRPM, an eRPM account must be created for you by an existing eRPM user (e.g., PI & Project Team or Unit Liaison) before you can log in.
