Activation Procedures

The Office of Research (O/R) requires the submission of certain documents to its office before an award can be assigned a project number and activated by Research/Cost Accounting (R/CA). Once a project number is assigned, expenses can be charged to that project in accordance with the sponsor’s guidelines and allowable costs. The attached checklist indicates what is needed for various types of new and continuing awards. Please refer to it and make sure you have all of the required items before sending the paperwork to O/R. Complete documentation will reduce the time it takes for departments to receive a project number. If the notice of grant award is sent to O/R by the sponsor, it will be sent to the department administrator as quickly as possible. When all paperwork for an activation is received and O/R completes its final review, the file will be released to R/CA for activation.
