Procurement Phase

After an award is made, the Grants and Contracts office oversees the budget spending to ensure that:

  • It follows the guidelines of the sponsoring agency; and
  • It follows the projected budget submitted to the sponsor at the beginning of the award.

To do this, purchase requests are routed through the Grants and Contracts office for final approval, and reports are obtained monthly to review budget activity and make any necessary changes.
