Sponsored Research Administration provides two full-day workshops that follow the life cycle of a sponsored project from funding announcement through close-out of the award. The information and activities are geared toward employees that are new to or have little experience working with sponsored projects.
Sponsored Projects Education and Resources (SPEAR) Workshop for Pre-Award: This one-day workshop is geared for NEW departmental staff who work with sponsored projects and will follow the life cycle of a sponsored project through the Pre-Award process. We will review the proposal documents, such as the funding announcement, the budget and budget justification, transmittal form, and all agency required documents. We will discuss the tasks associated with collaborations such as the documents required and the subrecipient/contractor determination. We will review the award set-up process and the non-financial post-award activities, such as no-cost time extensions, rebudgeting, etc. It is a largely hands-on workshop and each participant will have their own computer to complete the activities online. The information and activities will be geared toward employees that have little to no experience working on sponsored projects.
Sponsored Projects Education and Resources (SPEAR) Workshop for Post-Award: This one-day workshop is geared toward NEW departmental staff that work with sponsored projects and will follow a sponsored project from the awarded contract or grant through the closeout process. It is largely a hands-on workshop that will include Uniform Guidance, Financial Management of projects, Cost Sharing, Re-budgeting, Subaward Risk Assessment/Monitoring, and Project Closeout. Each participant will have their own computer to follow along with the demonstrations. The information and activities will be geared toward employees that have little to no experience working on sponsored projects.
