Process and Forms
Continued Compensation Request
If a PI believes work on a currently active sponsored program is unable to continue to be performed due to restrictions related to a pandemic or another crisis, they are to submit a continued compensation request form to Research & Sponsored Program Development to request to apply this policy.
If the request is approved, the PI will complete the continued compensation time report for each pay period in which they need to invoke this policy and submit the continued compensation time report to Grants & Contracts Accounting.
Request for Modification to a Sponsored Project
If there will be changes to an awarded project, a Request for Modification form must be completed and forwarded to the Research and Sponsored Program Development (RSPD). RSPD will review the request and determine what action is needed, which may include a contract modification with the sponsor. Sponsor approval may be required for modifications. Questions about when the submission of a Request for Modification is necessary can be directed to RSPD.
Temporary Spending Requests
If a PI would like to request a temporary spending account, the PI and department may complete a temporary spending request memo and submit to Research & Sponsored Program Development for review and approval. It is required that the document be on the department's letterhead with two authorized signatures asking for a project be set up or continued, while waiting for an executed agreement or amendment. These signatures may be a Chair, Dean or College Business Officer.
