Advanced Awards/Accounts

Advanced awards are established for the following scenarios:

 

  • Advance of receipt of the official award

    • Ability to charge espenditures prior to the official start date of an award
  • Extending the end date of an account

    • Allows spending to continue in anticipation of an official action that will formally extend the period of performance.  Refer to the Internal Account Extension Request section on the PEN form.

 

 

An advanced fund number may be requested by the unit before the agreement has been signed by the University if sufficient information is provided and there is a very high likelihood that the award will be made.If the PI received confirmation of funding, is on NSF Fastlane recommended for funding list, or Just-in-Time information on ERA Commons, are a few examples of support of funding

 

NOTE: The unit is fully responsible for any charges made to an advance account should an award or amendment not materialize.The department is also fully responsible for any allowable costs incurred when the pre-award cost exceeds the sponsor rule.
