TERA-PAMS is the electronic proposal routing system used at UT. TERA is the Tennessee Electronic Research Administration. PAMS (Proposal and Award Management System) is a module of TERA used for proposal creation, electronic routing and approval and award maintenance.  Each campus has its own instance of TERA-PAMS. UTK’s instance can be found at: TERA-PAMS Site

To log into TERA-PAMS, you will need your UT NetID and password.

Training sessions are scheduled periodically throughout the year. The training is called A-Z Proposal Preparation and Submission in TERA-PAMS. The sessions will go over all the features of the system and demonstrate how easy it is to create, electronically route, and process proposals to the Office of Sponsored Programs.
