Roles & Responsibilities

Administration of Externally Funded Grants and Contracts

This policy, which is maintained by the Office of Research Services (ORS), delineates the roles and responsibilities of DePaul faculty, staff, and administrators involved in grants activity. In doing so, it facilities the effective management of grant awards at DePaul.

Areas covered that pertain to award management include:

  • Award negotiation, acceptance, and setup
  • Award maintenance
  • Invoicing and accounts receivable management
  • Reporting
  • Award Closeout

For more information, see the policy and the Web-based training module designed to orient PIs to it. Also, see An Introduction to the Quality Assurance Review (QAR), an ORS Web-based training module that surveys the responsibilities of the PI as a manager of DePaul resources, including university funds and staff.

The following ORS Web-based training modules provide further detail on roles and responsibilities at key points in the lifecycle of a grant award:
