Post Award Sponsored Guide


The purpose of this guide is to serve as a resource for those whose work involves post-award financial responsibilities within the area of sponsored projects administration. Sponsored project agreements are legally and mutually binding agreements between the sponsoring agency and the University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC). Failure to comply with the required regulations and guidelines may jeopardize UMBC’s ability to qualify for future funding, require the refund of monies awarded, create audit disallowances, and/or result in fines or penalties. Consequently, the information contained in this guide is designed to facilitate a culture of compliance. The responsibility for compliance begins before the award is executed, continues throughout the duration of the project, and does not end until the project is completed and the record retention period has passed.

This guide is designed to allow updates to processes as changes occur.
