Grants & Contracts

The grant/contract process can be generally divided into two stages: pre-award and post-award.

The pre-award stage involves indentifying a funding opportunity and submitting a completed proposal.

Post-award covers all facets of the grant/contract after it is awarded and includes: creating accounts, setting up payroll distributions, spending, requesting extensions, filing agency reports, etc.

The Financial Administrator will assist the PI during both stages.

University Research Administration (URA) is responsible for reviewing out going proposals, providing University endorsement, and submitting proposals electronically. It also handles in-coming and out-going subawards.

Sponsored Award Accounting (formerly Restricted Funds) is responsible for post-award accounting and timely financial reporting to funding agencies.
