Title

Office of Sponsored Programs - 500.18 - Changes to Award Terms and Conditions

Purpose

This operating standard establishes the Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP) as the appointed authority in accepting and initiating changes to the terms and conditions of any research contract, grant, or cooperative agreement on behalf of the University.

Policy Statement

Terms and conditions of an award can be adjusted with amendments, modifications, change orders, supplements, carryovers, or continuations of the agreement. All adjustments must be approved by the University and in most cases, the sponsor.

Principal Investigators (PIs) do not have authority to make or execute changes or modifications to the terms of contracts or grants, and may not negotiate such changes without the prior knowledge and approval of the appropriate Sponsored Projects Specialist (SPS) in OSP.
