A Project Award Notice (PAN) was the document name used for an award notice in a legacy process of managing awards. It was not a substitution of the award, but simply a document acknowledging that the award was coming. This term was used at the University of Michigan for many years, even back in the “paper” system that preceded the 2008 launch of the eResearch Proposal Management (eRPM) system.
The PANs associated with legacy PAFs (those closed out before the August 20, 2018, Award Management launch) can be viewed under Manage Data > View All Award Notices on the PAF workspace in eRPM.
