RSP 507–01: Sponsored Project Award Changes
To ensure that ASU policies and sponsor regulations are adhered to for any changes to a sponsored project award
United States Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Circular A-21 (revised), Cost Principles for Educational Institutions
Arizona Board of Regents Policy Manual
Office for Research and Sponsored Projects Administration (ORSPA)
Some federal sponsors provide the university with latitude to institutionally approve many revisions without the need to obtain agency approval; sometimes approval vests solely in ORSPA. Where university approval is required, ORSPA has the responsibility to review the request for revision and ascertain that it meets all applicable requirements.
Every sponsor and award is different, and faculty and staff are encouraged to contact the assigned ORSPA Grant and Contract Officer to discuss the individual needs and requirements of the agency and the project.
Requests for pre-award spending, whether for grants or contracts, must be reviewed by the ORSPA Grant and Contract Officer.
Revisions to sponsored project awards that require prior approval should not be implemented until approval has been secured. If revisions are implemented prior to approval, the associated costs may be disallowed. Disallowed costs must be removed from the sponsored project account and transferred to an alternate source of funding to be identified by the principal investigator and approved by ORSPA (as appropriate).
For more information on how RSP policies are implemented during each phase of a project, see the ORSPA Web site.
