The OGSP often receives the award notice and documentation directly from the sponsoring agency. However, if you receive the award notice and/or award documentation, please send all original documents to the OGSP to process the award. Do not sign or submit any documents to the agency yourself - only the officially designated signatory for the University can sign an award or obligate the institution in any manner.
The OGSP will review the award documentation, address any issues/concerns, secure the appropriate signatures, and officially accept the award including returning required documentation to the sponsoring agency. The OGSP will inform the PI (and Dean/Chair) by email of the award, provide copies of the award documents, and provide information on reporting and management requirements.
