Award Process

Congratulations... your grant proposal is funded. You now enter into the Post Award process for implementing your grant. Your process begins with the OFFICIAL award notification from the funding source. Responsibilities for supporting the administration of grants and contracts are divided between the Finance Office and the Foundation Relations and Sponsored Programs Office.

Implementation of the project begins with the OFFICIAL GRANT AWARD NOTICE AND CONTRACT. The official document should go to the Accounting and Budget Office with a copy to the Foundation Relations and Sponsored Programs Office. This document will outline the official policies and procedures we must adhere to during the course of the grant along with reporting requirements and policies on pre-award spending if applicable. No spending can occur without this document.
