This course picks up where Blueprint of a Proposal leaves off. We overview what happens after the proposal has been submitted and what kinds of communication you might expect at the pre-award phase of a sponsored project. We then take a look at processes that occur when the UW receives an award from a sponsor.
Specific topics include:
- Sponsor review
- Types of awards
- Pre-award sponsor correspondence (e.g. just in time)
- The Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP) review, negotiations, and role in the UW setup process
- P.I./Campus review and Award Setup Request Roles
- Advance Awards
The focus is on action items for Research Administrators and Principal Investigators, along with opportunities for planning at the setup of a new award to establish a strong foundation for successful management of that award.
Note: This course provides a broad overview of activities occurring after proposal submission through award setup at the UW. A companion course, Reading the Notice of Award, provides a detailed look at the specific terms and conditions, and sponsor requirements, that are laid out in the Notice of Award a sponsor provides to the UW at award time.
