Award Pending

An institutionally approved account that is established in advance of official notification of grant funding or execution of a contract, when the PI is reasonably confident that funding will be awarded and when the specific project start date is assured. This process allows a sponsored project account to be established effective on the anticipated start date. Should the award not be forthcoming, the PI and his/her department or unit agrees to assume responsibility for any expenditures made on the account.
