Step 4

Budget Changes

All sponsored project budget revisions are conducted by the Office of Post-Award Management (OPM). If sponsored approval is necessary, OPM will work to obtain necessary approvals. The following may require OSP approval:

  • Change of any named personnel
  • Reduction of salary/effort
  • Change in equipment costs
  • Addition of foreign travel
  • Change greater than 25% of budget item
  • Change in student support (c7000)

Supplemental Funds Requests

Requests for additional funding on an existing project are processed as proposals through OSP.

You will need the following items:

  1. Proposal Certification Form
  2. Export Control Form
  3. Budget and justification
  4. Statement of work for the additional effort
  5. Updated certification for all compliance issues (if necessary)

Change of Principal Investigator

If a change of Principal Investigator (PI) is required on a project, a letter must be sent to the sponsor. The letter should be endorsed by the current PI, the proposed PI, and OSP. The letter also should outline the qualifications of the new PI. Approval from the respective Deans will also be necessary.

Leave of Absence

If a PI plans to be away from the University and has a sponsored project, the PI will need to notify OSP, who will need to notify the sponsor in writing of the absence. The notification will need to address how the PI plans to maintain oversight of the project during the absence. This letter needs to be signed by OSP.
