Who does what when receiving a newly awarded project?
- Before Project Start (Pre-Award / Post-Submission)
- Review the Award
- Set Up Project
Many of the tasks in Set Up Project come just after you Route & Submit your proposal but before the project is awarded. Therefore you could think of some aspects of the Set Up Project phase as a Pre-Award / Post-Submission mini-phase. This section describes what you can expect upon receiving your award and how to Set Up your project.
Many of the tasks in this phase happen right after you submit your proposal but before the project is awarded so it helps to think of this phase as a Pre-Award / Post-Submission mini-phase. Here you will receive the Notice of Award (AWD) via an email alert sent from eRPM, including everyone listed on the AWD. It provides you with the AWD number and an associated project/grant (P/G) number in the U-M accounting system.
After Routing and Submitting Your Proposal, there is waiting time often referred to as the Pre-Award/Post-Submission period. Before your Notice of Award is issued and you set up your project, the following things may need to be addressed.
- PEERRS Training - Program for Education and Evaluation in Responsible Research and Scholarship training courses are required per university, state, and federal regulations regarding the responsible conduct of research (RCR). PEERRS certification may be required for participation on a study or project team, depending on your role (e.g., Principal Investigator), the funding source (e.g., NIH), and/or the type of research (e.g., human subjects).
- Request a Hardship - Prior to having an award in hand, you may need a project grant (P/G) number set up in advance to spend funds. If approved, the hardship process permits work to begin and costs to be properly allocated in situations.
