These procedures are based on the UMass Dartmouth Policy for Development and Administration of Grants, Contracts and Cooperative Agreements for Sponsored Programs as well as other applicable internal and external policies and guidelines and best practices.
All faculty and staff conducting sponsored research and other scholarly activity should become familiar with these procedures.
The staff of the Office of Research Administration are available to answer any questions pertaining to the management of sponsored projects.
Awards are issued to UMD with a principal investigator (PI) or project director named in the award. The awards contain terms and conditions that UMD must comply with. The terms include a project period during which expenditures may be incurred, an approved budget and rebudgeting requirements, and required submission of technical and financial reports. Along with the award terms and conditions, University, state and federal policies and guidelines must also be followed.
The federal policies include the Office of Management and Budget Circular (OMB) A-21, which prescribes allowabilitity of costs to sponsored projects, and OMB A-110, which prescribes financial management of awards.
