Award administration begins when the university receives notice of an award, continues through the term of the sponsored project, and culminates in the closeout of the award and submission of final reports to the sponsor.
The principal investigator (PI) has primary responsibility for the financial and technical aspects of a sponsored project in accordance with relevant regulations, sponsor requirements and university policies. Major activities that may occur during award management include:
- expending funds;
- making modifications to the project budget, personnel or timeframe;
- monitoring financial activity;
- issuing project reports; and
- establishing and monitoring subawards.
The Principal Investigator (PI) Dashboard provides access to personalized award information. The research community can use this tool to make more informed project decisions by viewing financial and human resources information about awards at summarized and detailed levels.
