Managing Awards

The Office of Sponsored Awards Management helps researchers manage sponsored awards by:

  • reviewing and negotiating grant and contract documents received from funding agencies.
  • answering non-financial, post-award research administration questions.
  • gathering information and resolving issues in conjunction with other campus units, including Purchasing, Grants and Funds Management, Personnel, etc.
  • coordinating directly with funding agencies for post-award administrative issues like project extensions, rebudgeting, scope changes, change of principal investigators, closeout and other project modifications.
  • preparing and negotiating subawards and subcontracts.

In this section, we provide information about managing awards (specific awards management topics are described below). If you need assistance with managing awards, please contact your SAM administrator.


Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
