When 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.
