Grants and contracts awarded to CSU Stanislaus are administered by the Grant Administration department within Financial Services. The Post Award (PA) team assists Principal Investigators (PIs) in managing their projects in support of the University's mission of teaching and scholarship.
Post Award works closely with PIs and administrative staff to assist with meeting the requirements of an award. It is Post Award that submits approval requests to the sponsor for anticipated changes regarding grant personnel, funding extensions, revisions to the work plan or objectives, and budget adjustments. PA also serves as the campus liaison with granting agencies, notifies PIs of report deadlines, coordinates reports, and assists in obtaining, completing, and submitting any required documentation or forms.
The PA team performs periodic audits to ensure that the campus is in compliance with federal and state regulations as well as internal policies.
