Close Out Project

Close Out Project

All awards made to the University must be completed according to the terms and conditions of the grant agreement or contract. One of our roles in the Office of Research and Outreach is to assist the principal investigator and his/her support staff to close out grants in a timely and accurate manner. With this end in mind, we are providing this guidance and welcome you to reach out to us should you have further questions.

  • It’s a sound practice to begin preparations for close out 60-90 days prior to your project end date. Please see the Closeout Procedures and Timeline. During this time you can monitor the project timeline, follow-up with subcontractors (if applicable) to ensure they are on target and monitor outstanding expenses. It is during this time that you can determine if you will need to request a project extension from the sponsor.
  • If you foresee that a no cost extension or modification will be required, please contact our office as soon as possible.

Responsibilities of Principal Investigator: We invite you to review the information contained on the Office of Sponsored Programs - Post Award which will give you a thorough review of the grantmaking process within our University setting. Furthermore, it will provide more details in regards to your responsibilities as a principal investigator.
