Sponsored Awards

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

  • The pre-award stage involves identifying 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 sub-awards and is responsible for post-award accounting and timely financial reporting to funding agencies. URA's forms/templates page provides a number of commonly used form templates for pre/post-award processes, subawards, consulting agreements, material transfer agreements, and other matters.
