Post AwardSo, your proposal has been accepted by the sponsor and an award letter has been received by the President's Office at SPSU. Congratulations!
Often this letter will accompany a request to modify the budget prior to funds being released. This negotiation will be the shared responsibility of the Principal Investigator (PI), the Director of Sponsored Programs, and the Vice President of Business and Finance. Once these negotiations have been finalized you will be notified of an official start date of your project.
An account number will be set up through fiscal affairs. This account number will be the same for the total award period of your project and will be included on all paperwork submitted to the University.
A meeting will be set up between Sponsored Programs, your Department Chair, Dean and you. We will go over the specifics of your award, the sponsor's expectations and the fiscal requirements of the sponsored agreement.
In the Sponsored Project Handbook, available through the link at the left, you will find directions and reference materials that will make your administrative experiences as a Principal Investigator go smoothly.
Keep in mind that any time you have a question or concern regarding the fiscal management of your award you may call the Office of Sponsored Programs for advice and clarification at (678) 915-3156.
