Award Notification/Negotiation

Awards are made to a legal entity, Texas A&M University-Kingsville, not an individual principal investigator or program director. Receipt of an official Notice of Award is required prior to the establishment of a grant account for expenditures. Once ORSP is notified that the funding agency has awarded the grant, they will begin the post-award process of establishing an account for the PI through Grants and Contracts.In exceptional circumstances and with written notice from the sponsor, an Advance Account may be established for expenditures for time and effort.

The Director of ORSP is authorized to negotiate awards and agreements on behalf of the university. This includes requirements for budget/financial and technical revisions. ORSP will not negotiate changes in the technical nature of the research, program activities, or significant budgetary revisions without consultation with those individuals whose signature was required for the initial authorization to submit.
