Setup FOM account

Yale researchers please follow the steps below for Yale FOM account setup and instrument application. For Krios, the staff will book the instrument on behalf of the user, but the user must be registered in the system. A specific combination of one or multiple COA accounts (aka. charging instructions) is linked to a specific project. If the user chooses to switch COAs, he must first add those new COAs to his account and project in FOM system. In other words, the user needs to provide the charging instruction twice in the process, first in the Access request form, second in the FOM system. The latter may be skipped if the project and its corresponding charging instruction already exist. This will allow the staff to select the appropriate charging instructions for the corresponding project in FOM when preparing billing reports.
