Receiving an award is one of the most exciting steps in the research administration life cycle. However, with that notice comes with a level of responsibilities that can feel overwhelming and confusing. The post award phase of research administration includes implementing the grant, monitoring expenses, reporting progress, billing, and completing the closeout process.
During this phase of the award life cycle, the research administration objectives are achieved through a collaborative effort between Principal Investigators, Departments, Office of Sponsored Research, Contracts and Grants Accounting (CGA), and often with a participation of many other internal and external contributors.
This workshop will build the foundation necessary to understand the post-award research administration lifecycle, the core responsibilities for managing the award, and key terms that will increase productivity and improve accuracy. Join our presenters who have a combined 65 years’ experience in the life cycle management of research projects as we navigate the ins and outs of post-award research administration.
