Office of Grants & Research

Where do I go for help?

It depends on the activity. The OGR handles all pre-award and non-financial post-award activities while the Controller's Office handles all financial post-award activities. While the two offices work closely together to ensure that appropriate and accurate fiscal information is provided on agency requests, use the table below as a guide.

Office of Grants and Research (OGR)

  • Proposal and budget review
  • Online submission of proposals
  • IDC waivers and cost sharing approvals
  • Requests from sponsors regarding pending and awarded projects
  • Negotiation, execution, and modification of contracts
  • Receipt and processing of the Notice of Award
  • Sign-off for relinquishing documents, grant transfers, and Patent/Invention Statements

Controller's Office
