Successfully managing your grant award

After an award is executed, OSRP Post-Award staff has the central oversight responsibilities to ensure programmatic scopes are in accordance with the applicable regulations, terms and conditions of the award, as well as University policies and procedures.

While the process of managing sponsored project awards is a shared responsibility between the Principal Investigator (PI) and the staff of the Office of Sponsored Research and Projects (OSRP), both have unique areas of primary responsibility.  Our department handles post award items such as changes in PI, no cost extensions, prior approval, re-budgeting, award negotiation, sub-award negotiation and assistance in other post award issues that may arise.

Here we outline the Principal Investigator’s role in sponsored projects management and provide Principal Investigator’s with the MSU Denver documentation and forms needed to successfully manage a sponsored project award.
