See section VII for administration instructions for Federal Awards.
Any major changes in project scope, budget or faculty involvement requires that the faculty member notify the award sponsor in writing and obtain written approval from that sponsor for the changes. A copy of the request should be submitted to the Director of Foundation and Corporate Relations and Associate Dean of Academic Affairs.
The faculty member/project director is responsible for the timely submission of all technical and financial reports, in accordance with the terms of the grant. Unless otherwise specified in the grant terms, final reports are normally due within three months of the termination of the grant.
The Director of Foundation and Corporate Relations should be advised immediately of any over expenditure. S/he will then work with the faculty member, his or her department, and Associate Dean of Academic Affairs to redistribute those charges. In some instances, the faculty member may be responsible for the fund deficiency.
No cost transfers can be made unless the expenditures are applicable to the account against which they are to be charged. All cost transfers must be approved by an Associate Dean of Academic Affairs.
