A sponsored award (a category including grants and contracts) is the transfer of funds from a sponsor to an institution to carry out specific activities that align with sponsor’s mission or interests. Sponsors typically provide such funding on the basis of a specific project or research plan and budget, for a specified period of time, with funds unused at the expiration of the time period often reverting to the sponsor. Central Post-Award works with Local Research Administrators and investigators on financial management of sponsored awards. These resources will orient you to post-award financial management.
