Preparing for the end of a budget period

As a project approaches the end of a budget period, reports and requests may need to be submitted, dependent upon the sponsor. Refer to to Notice of Award (NOA) for specific requirements.

Preparing for the end of an award/project

As a project approaches the end of the award period, decisions need to be made and actions need to be taken in a timely manner to ensure a clean and compliant close out or extension of the project. Beginning at least 90 days prior to the project end date, the PI, grant manager, and any applicable research staff should coordinate to determine if the project objectives have been concluded and the team should proceed with closing out the project/award, or if there are outstanding objectives that would warrant requesting a no-cost extension from the sponsor.
