Office Responsible for Post-Award Administration

Determining the office responsible for the negotiation, acceptance, and related post-award administration of external funding awards, is dependent on the type of sponsor and the type of award terms. If the sponsor is:

The federal/state/local government

An individual donor
Other than the above, responsibility is determined by terms of the award (gift, grant, or contract).

Exceptions: For awards that may not fit clearly in any category above, consultation between the two offices will be necessary to determine the best post-award administration.
