GCA provides tips for grant award reductions

In the current funding environment, it is not uncommon to have awards reduced. When an award is received that is less than the amount proposed, it is the recommendation of the Division of Research that a revised scope of work be submitted to the sponsor.

Please contact the sponsor’s program officer to discuss any changes to the scope of work that are necessary due to the reduced budget, including an appropriate reduction in cost share or contributed effort.

If you do not do this, you could be held responsible for the full statement of work for the reduced amount of money from the sponsor.

If you have any questions or concerns, contact GCA at 777.4151 or
