Setting up an AccountWhen all negotiations are complete and OSP receives the signed award notice/contract, OSP is responsible for the initial entry of an award in the university financial system. We wish to complete this process as speedily as possible but need information as outlined in the Establishing an Award page. Failure to provide OSP with any of this information means a delay in receiving project funds.
If the Principal Investigator wishes to have an account established in the financial system prior to the receipt of a complete award document, a preliminary project account can be established. It is called a Verbal Approval Request.
