Prior Approval for Changes
Each sponsor may have specific requirements regarding changes to the scope of the project or modifications to the approved budget. Any changes should be discussed with OGSP. This is especially important regarding changes in project duration or the budget, as OGSP may have expanded authority to approve changes to certain grants without prior approval from the sponsor.
For awards requiring prior approval from the sponsor, correspondence with the sponsor requesting such changes must be approved and executed by the OGSP on behalf of the University. Once written approval is received from the sponsor, the investigator and other academic and administrative units will receive notification.
