Pre-acceptance Process

The Office of Grants and Contracts (OGC) generally receives the official copy/notification of a grant award or contract, and reviews/negotiates terms and conditions of the award with the funding agency. PI is notified and advised on the requirements of a grant or contract and, upon confirmation of understanding and acceptance by the PI and receipt of any other pertinent pre-award documents, OGC forwards the award document to the CSU Fullerton Auxiliary Services Corporation’s (ASC) Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP), for acceptance/execution by the ASC’s executive director. Once fully executed, the OSP coordinator issues an ASC account number and schedules a post-award orientation with the PI. The Sponsored Programs PI/PD HandbookOpens in new window  provides post-award grant administration and compliance information.

OSP serves as a central point of contact for sponsor grant or contract officers regarding administrative matters throughout the duration of the project. OSP also serves as facilitator for Principal Investigators in all matters post award non-financial administration. In addition, OSP coordinates compliance with each sponsor's requirements for interim and final progress reports. Principal Investigators are responsible for submission of all required reports in a timely fashion.
