Post-Award services provide fiscal support and compliance management necessary to meet the goals of an award. The Post-Award team works closely with Primary Investigators. Co – Investigators, program and administrative staff from the initial award through close-out.
Congratulations on your new award! The Research Foundation Post-Award team is here to assist Research Faculty and other authorized collaborators and staff in the successful administration of the award.
The Research Foundation is notified directly by the sponsoring agency that a proposal has been selected for funding. Award documents are made in the name of the Research Foundation typically identifying the Principal Investigators and Co-Investigators responsible for the technical aspects of the proposed research or sponsored activity.
Upon notification that an award is to be funded, a member of the Post-Award team is assigned the award and will directly contact the Principal Investigator and Co-Investigators.
Some grant awards and funding agreements may require negotiation on specific terms and conditions pertaining to the funding. These matters are handled by the Post-Award team and require resolution before work may begin on an award.
The Research Foundation collaborates closely with the Office of Research to assure that research faculty and investigators comply with University policies on Research Compliance and Intellectual Property.
