Sponsored Programs Office

New Award Orientation

When an award has been received, University Corporation (UCorp) Grants Accounting will send the Principal Investigator (PI) a Chartfield Request/Update Signature Authorization. Once the form is completed and returned to UCorp, a project number will be assigned and the Sponsored Programs Office will be notified to initiate a meeting with the PI.

Sponsored Programs Office staff will then set up a New Award Orientation meeting with the PI to discuss key highlights and regulatory requirements of the award. The PI must designate any additional support staff that should attend the meeting.

NOTE: NO expenditures against the award may be incurred prior to the New Award Orientation meeting.
