The National Science Foundation is donig a national search for the new Head of the Office of Integrative Actitivies (OIA).
In an effort to construct departmental management tools for supervisors in areas with sponsored funding, a new field in Duke’s Sponsored Projects System (SPS*) has been created to help identify the person responsible for supporting principal investigators with the pre-award aspects of grant submission. The Department Pre-award Liaison (PAL) field was added to SPS* to help provide this clarity and facilitate the generation of pre-award management reports that can be shared with department, center, and institute research administrators. We envision this information to be useful for managers in determining the complexity and workload of the pre-award function within each unit and by each staff member.
REMINDER for The Closeout Process
Many of you have seen the email that was distributed on May 11th, regarding a new institutional email address to use when submitting sponsored project closeout documents. In response to subsequent questions from the community, we’d like to clarify the group email addresses available for post-award financial issues.
