Project Closeout

Timely closeout of sponsored awards is essential to Brandeis’ compliance with both the sponsor requirements as well as university policies.

There are different types of Research Agreements at Brandeis:

Each one of these agreements can have different closing processes. But essentially, the Sponsored Programs Accounting (SPA) works with the grant manager to make sure that all bills are paid appropriately and that all charges are allowable and allocable. 

The grant manager and SPA also review all uncertified salary for an account before the award closes.

Final report – there are two types of final reports that are generally required.  The first is a narrative final report written by the PI. The second is a final financial report produced and signed by SPA.  The financial report is reviewed by the grant manager and an analyst from SPA.
