The system uses alpha-numeric designators to track subgrantee expenditures by task as listed in the Highway Safety Plan (HSP).Anchor: #i1013012
Oracle PeopleSoft (OPS)
OPS is TxDOT’s official record where all obligations and expenditures are recorded. The eGrants interface with OPS is responsible for entering information into OPS.
This section provides specific information on the Texas Traffic Safety Program’s relationship to OPS. OPS requires that various data elements be coded for the authorization of expenditures to be accepted into the system.Anchor: #i1013035
Assignment of Charge Numbers
The TxDOT TRF-TS Planner inputs the elements required to build charge numbers. The eGrants system creates these unique charge numbers for each project. These numbers are stored in the eGrants database, displayed on all grant agreements, and passed to OPS via the eGrants-OPS interface. The charge numbers, along with other project details, are entered in OPS.
