    1. Guidelines for Successful Post-Award Management: An Institution/Academic Perspective Presented by Dr. McArthur Floyd School of Agricultural & Environmental Sciences Alabama A&M University At the CSREES/SERD Project Director’s Conference March 30-April1, 2005 New Orleans, LA

    2. Vision Statement To provide strategies and mechanisms for effective post award management based upon observations and policy developed during tenure as Research Director at Alabama A&M University (AAMU). Guidelines for Successful Post-Award Management: An Institution/Academic Perspective

    3. Objectives • To provide research scientists with strategies for managing grants after funding. • To discuss mechanisms to assist scientists in obtaining post management expectations of their University and the federal government. Guidelines for Successful Post-Award Management: An Institution/Academic Perspective

    4. Summary of Presentation • Submission of Grant Proposal – University Level • Notice of Grant Award • Implementation of Actual Experiment • Closure of Research Grant Guidelines for Successful Post-Award Management: An Institution/Academic Perspective

    5. Submission of Grant Proposal – University Level • No faculty member should submit any proposals directly to a funding agency without appropriate prior University approvals. • Proposals should be submitted and endorsed through normal supervisory channels • Thus; proposals should be submitted in a timely manner (i.e., a minimum of five (5) working days) Guidelines for Successful Post-Award Management: An Institution/Academic Perspective

    6. Submission of Grant Proposal – University Level… continued • School level review is important in terms of the impact the research program/project will have on the School. • For example: • Does the proposed research agree with the long-term goals of the school; department of origin, and University? • What effects will the project have on class schedules, teaching assignments, and learning experiences, as well as laboratory, classroom and office space within the school? • What will be the support staff requirements, including secretarial, technical or student? • Also of a major concern is related financial considerations to include both indirect costs and matching funds.

    7. Submission of Grant Proposal – University Level… continued • Special Conditions: • Proposals requesting the hiring of new faculty or staff members or extended release time for existing personnel require administrative approval. • Proposals requiring the use of human subjects, biohazardous materials, or greater than ordinary space utilization, construction/renovations, equipment additions will not only require the Dean’s signature but also specific appointed University Committees and/or task forces. This usually requires extra lead time beyond the five day minimum (i.e., one day minimum for each special requirement) Guidelines for Successful Post-Award Management: An Institution/Academic Perspective

    8. Steps in AAMU Proposal Flow • Proposal is developed by Principal Investigator (PI). • Preliminary draft reviewed by Department Head and returned to PI with any comments, corrections, etc. • Corrected proposal submitted with Proposal Review and Certification Form to Department Head for signature. • Upon approval, proposal is then submitted by PI to the School Dean for review (impact on school policies, programs, and long-term goals) and signature of approval.

    9. Steps in AAMU Proposal Flow • Proposal submitted to Office of Grants and Contracts in Research and Development for final review (completeness, adherence to policies, agency and AAMU regulations) and processing, allowing a minimum of five (5) working days for University administrative approvals. • Special Circumstances. Proposal review by Financial Services and/or by select appointed University committees and task forces, as needed. • Final processing by Office of Grants & Contracts in Research and Development (copying, packaging, letter of transmittal). • Proposal is mailed to agency. • Wait for Good News.
