Award Receipt and Negotiation


In some cases, an award may be issued by the agency after a series of negotiations that may involve revisions to the scope of the project, period of performance, and/or proposed budget. OGSP, working with Legal Affairs, is the authorized agent for negotiating such revisions.  If revisions are necessary, OGSP will not make any changes to the project or scope without the consent of the PI/PD.  The acceptance of a revised scope of work, period of performance or budget is a judgment that only the PI/PD can make; it is not a judgment or condition that may be unilaterally imposed by the granting agency.

If the agency requires the submission of a revised work plan or budget, this must be prepared by the PI/PD and submitted to OGSP for institutional endorsement prior to forwarding the revisions to the agency.  Revisions, either programmatic or budgetary, which represent substantial changes to the original proposal must be reviewed and approved by OGSP and Georgia College administration in the same manner as a new proposal.

If the grant agency contacts the PI/PD about revisions, please contact OGSP for guidance and the appropriate documents and procedures to use.
