FAQs for New Award
No. Individual researchers are not authorized to sign anything on behalf of Oregon State University. Only designated staff in the Research Office have signature authority. The one exception is where a signature line specifies Principal Investigator. Our team can assist with getting OSU signatures.
We can help! Please forward all emails to firstname.lastname@example.org and our team will work with you on a timely response to the sponsor.
OSRAA maintains an Award Status website that shows the status of all award agreements currently being processed internally. Check here first: https://research.oregonstate.edu/principal-investigator-and-award-status. This webpage is automatically updated each night. If you need more information, contact us.
Yes! To start the subaward process, complete a New Subaward Request Form for each subcontractor and submit to email@example.com. Your grant accountant can assist with the form. Note that subaward agreements cannot be created until an index is set up for the prime award to OSU. All subawards must be designated within the proposal and approved by the agency at the time of the award.
