Dashboards and Reports


Emory Business Intelligence


The suite of financial reports available in EBI is sourced from the original transaction system such as Compass, Emory Express, or the Effort Reporting System (ERS). The data is a direct reflection of what is found in the source system. No manipulation of the data takes place in EBI. Data from the source system may be summarized according to business requirements.

Managerial and operational reports are provided to allow users to administrate unrestricted operating budgets, sponsored and non-sponsored projects. Please note that report names are clickable links to the reports in EBI, but you will be prompted to sign in if you have not already done so.

Account Administrator Roles Reference

The Account Administrator Roles Reference dashboard displays the most current role or roles assigned to staff and faculty through the Account Administrator tool in Compass. It can be used as a quick reference to search assignments by various Chartfields, the Employee Role, or by Employee.

SpeedType Reference 

This Dashboard allows you to enter a SpeedType and display the corresponding Chartfields or to search for a SpeedType by Chartfields. This is similar to the SpeedType Maintenance page in Compass and can be accessed from any of the menu sections below.

All Funds - Fund Balance Report

An enhanced version of the MGT 4440, the All Funds - Fund Balance Report provides a fund balance across all fund codes by project, academic unit, and department. Unlike the budget position report, this report takes the fiscal year beginning fund balance for a project, the fiscal year to date total revenues, expenses and transfers, and calculates an ending balance as of the specified date.

NEW: The All Funds - Fund Balance Trend has been added to the existing dashboard. This report provides a trend of the fiscal year end fund balance over the life of a project, giving insight into the flow of funds over time.

All Funds - Position Report

Similar to the MGT 4102, the All Funds - Position Report provides net revenues and net expenses by account category, across fund type, including totals for each account category and a calculated percentage shown as the percentage of total revenues or total expenses as applicable.

Business Officer Performance Management

The Business Officer Performance Management Dashboard provides a collection of reports designed to give a business officer indications of performance and the ability to proactively manage finances based on trends and a variety of performance indicators. With an enterprise to individual approach, pages within this dashboard can be run at a high level summary view across the enterprise, while also allowing the ability to drill all the way to line item information.

Faculty Financial Summary

The Faculty Financial Summary Dashboard allows faculty to access their complete sponsored and non-sponsored portfolio on-demand.

Faculty members have the ability to set the Faculty Financial Summary dashboard as their home screen in EBI, no navigation required. View more details and resources for faculty members.

Investment Funds Spending & Market Value

The Investment Funds Spending & Market Value Dashboard is intended to provide endowment and related spending project information to the broader finance community. This dashboard will provide users the ability to view endowment and spending project information; drill to journal level detailed information; budget for scholarship spending in an effort to reduce financial aid impact to unrestricted funds; and see details related to restricted fund utilization. This dashboard contains data from Compass and Fund driver to give users a more complete picture of endowment funds in one source.

SpeedType Reference

Budget to Actual Reporting

This dashboard contains all budget to actual reporting (formerly known as budget position reports). It includes an All Funds Summary, Summary and Detail by Fund Category (UOB,NSP, and SPP), and Fiscal Year Trends for UOB and NSP. This dashboard should be used as the primary reporting source for fiscal year budget to actual performance.

This is an enhanced version of the current encumbrance query showing your encumbrance balance with a detailed view of purchase orders and liquidated vouchers.

Labor Transaction Detail Reports (LTDR)  Available to users with Labor Security Access only

Labor reports in the Emory Business Intelligence Tool have four tabs (or pages) which give you four different labor reports to choose from: by transaction, by charged employee, by managed employee, or a combination of the two. This report replaces the Labor Distribution Report previously run from WebFOCUS.

Non-Sponsored Projects LTD Actuals Trend

Provides a trend by fiscal year for LTD actuals that have posted to non-sponsored projects. This dashboard is designed to assist in developing a budget for non-sponsored projects by enabling users to see past spending trends.

The Project Team Reference Dashboard provides a report of team members, their roles, and their committed effort for Sponsored projects. It can be filtered by Award, Project, Role, and Team Member Name for current projects with the option to include past and future projects.
Please Note: The committed effort listed in this report reflects the effort level specified in the original proposal to the agency or otherwise explicitly negotiated with the agency prior to the award.

Award Analysis Dashboard

This dashboard includes sub-reports that break out data by school and department and show variances against prior periods. It provides Monthly/Annual Expenditures Reports, Award data, and a Five-Year Trend.

Budget to Actual Reporting - Sponsored Projects

Similar to the Budget to Actual Reporting dashboard in the FMS - Operational folder, this dashboard contains a summary and detail budget to actuals report and a financial trend report for life to date activity on Sponsored Projects.

Effort Analysis Report

Provides the percentage of committed effort, the percentage of charged effort, the percentage of certified effort and a variance of the certified vs. committed effort. The report can be run by Operating Unit, Department, Award, Project, Individual employee, or Assigned Pre-Reviewer. All effort pages that contain employee payroll have the same security as the labor report.
Therefore, only authorized charged or managed employee detail will appear based upon your security configuration.

Effort Salary Cap Report

Provides salary distribution for employees paid from sponsored projects. This report provides an indication that a salary cap exists for an award, as well as the amount of the salary cap, when applicable. In addition, this report provides a calculation of the maximum amount of salary the employee could charge per effort reporting period in order to avoid exceeding the sponsor-imposed salary cap.

Effort Status Report

Provides the ability to view the status (pending, pre-reviewed, certified) of effort certifications by Operating Unit, Department, Award, Project, or Assigned Pre-Reviewer. All effort pages that contain employee payroll have the same security as the labor report. Therefore, only authorized charged or managed employee detail will appear based upon your security configuration.

Proposal Analysis Dashboard

This Dashboard provides a monthly proposal statistics summarization of the number of proposals received by the university, as well as funding information for those proposals.

Sponsored Research Accounts Receivable Aging Report

Provides a report of payments to Emory on sponsored projects and their aging status if late. The report allows users to analyze late payments on Sponsored Projects and provides details regarding the agency information, contract information, PI, and invoice due dates. For late payments, aging is broken into periods of 1-30 days, 31-60 days, 61-90 days, 91-120 days, and greater than 120.

Sponsored Research Financial Summary

Previously available in FORS, the Sponsored Research Financial Summary provides a snapshot of the Cash and Budget position for a particular award.

The Report is multi-layered as follows:

  1. Shows the Asset and Liability position as well as Available Balance at an award level.
  2. Drill down on an Award resulting in a list of Projects associated with the selected award that shows the Asset and Liability position as well as Available Balance at a project level for that award.

In addition the report enables reporting for the 11330- Research Participant Payment Fund. The report can be run by Operating Unit, Department, PI, Award, Contract type, etc. 

Faculty Financial Summary

The Faculty Financial Summary is a dashboard in EBI created to allow faculty to access their complete sponsored and non-sponsored portfolio on-demand. The Faculty Financial Summary is intended to serve as an “online bank account” style view of a faculty member’s portfolio, providing current balances based on expenses that have already occurred.

Benefits of the Faculty Financial Summary Dashboard include:

  • One source to review balances for entire portfolio, including Sponsored Projects and Non-Sponsored Projects
    • Includes Sponsored Projects where faculty member has been identified as either the Award PI or the Project PI
  • The ability to set the Faculty Financial Summary as the faculty member's home screen upon logging into EBI
    • No navigation required
    • Report runs automatically based on faculty member logged in
  • The ability to customize views in the Dashboard
    • See what information is important to you, arranged in a format that makes sense to you
    • Save customized view so that the report is always formatted in the way you want

The Sponsored Projects and Non-Sponsored Projects that populate the Faculty Financial Summary dashboard are driven by the roles that have been assigned to that faculty member. Not all Business Units/Schools have assigned roles to faculty members at this time. If you are unsure if you have been assigned roles, please check with your department administrator.

Resources Available for Faculty:

Faculty who wish to explore customizations of the Faculty Financial Summary on their own are encouraged to utilize the instructions provided in the Staff Version of the Job Aid.
