Research Administrators
Informative Noontime Collaboration
[cid:image005.png at 01D7B92E.7B467C10]
Collaborate ~ Communicate ~ Connect

Please join Research Administrators INC on Monday, October 18th at Noon as we continue with Part 2 of a 2-part series on Award Monitoring / Award Management.  (Please note that each part is 2 hours in length.)

These two sessions will: (i) focus on award management strategies and techniques for both the central and departmental research administrators tasked with financial oversight of sponsored awards; (ii) focus on what to look for during award initiation and award closeout; and (iii) discuss strategies for how the research administrator can best support the PI during the period of performance to maximize award spending, while effectively managing risk. Furthermore, in this 2-part session will review some perennial hot topics such as cost transfers, subaward monitoring, cost sharing, and effective and efficient award closeouts.
Learning objectives:

  *   Participants will learn techniques for identifying higher risk awards and transactions and what documentation to put in place to support these costs (or when to transfer them off of the award) as well as an awareness of when to ask more questions.
  *   Participants will also be introduced to proactive award management strategies that, if applied during the life of the award, will support an efficient and timely closeout.

To receive the ZOOM link to this meeting, please register here<https://redit.ucr.edu/OrApps/Org/OrgEvents/Default.aspx?g=inc>.  (The link will be emailed to each registrant on the morning of the event.)
