RMS manages the post-award process for the majority of external agency funded grants and contracts. When a notice of decision (NOD) from the funding agency is received, by the PI or Financial Resources, the NOD. Provided that RMS has already received the complete file, which includes the RE form, application proposal, budget and required certifications, we will proceed to the research account creation and processing.
Once the research account is opened by RMS, an internal NOD email is sent from RMS to the researcher and to the appropriate faculty or finance staff. This NOD will inform you of the number of the account into which your funds will be deposited, the award information and yearly financial breakdown, as well as any certification requirements. The NOD also serves to alert Financial Resources to activate the included account number and deposit the awarded funds upon reception.
