Sponsor Requirements

Each sponsor has their own policies and procedures that apply when we receive an award. Sponsors may include restrictions or milestones that must be met soon after the award is received.

Sponsor requirements are found in:

  • The specific funding opportunity
  • The award terms and conditions
  • The sponsor’s overarching guidance or policies related to grant funding (e.g. NIH Policy Statement, NSF Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG))
  • Federal regulations that must be followed by the sponsor and the applicant
  • Sponsor website

The Office of Sponsored Programs reviews, negotiates, and accepts awards on behalf of the University. Review guidance, roles and steps for award review and set up.
