The Post-Award Team aims to guide you towards SUCCESS.

The Post Award Team is responsible for the post award administration of all sponsored projects at UM. We set up new grant accounts, prepare and submit invoices and financial reports to the sponsors, and close out expired sponsored projects. We also provide guidance on post-award administration topics including allowability of cost on sponsored projects, effort certification, cost share, program income, and other compliance related topics. We strive for excellence in providing support and oversight in managing sponsored projects and monitoring the financial compliance requirements of our sponsors.
