Some award changes may require Sponsors prior approval before processing them internally. Federal administrative requirements allow agencies to waive certain cost-related and administrative prior approvals; these are known as expanded authorities. Prior approval may not be necessary on some changes in the case of federal sponsors who grant expanded authorities.
Examples of changes that may require prior sponsor approval include: no-cost extension, budget extension, PI change, carry forward, changes in the scope of work, early termination, relinquishment etc.
It's important that you read and understand the terms of your award, sponsor guidance and additional instructions below based on the type of award change being requested.
Post award changes are processed through myResearch Grants by accessing your Award (AWD#) and select Request Award Modification function. For assistance, contact your departmental administrator or your OSP Specialist.
