The Grants Department plays a limited role in the administration of funded projects. In general:
- Management of grant projects is conducted by the project director who is assigned during the grants development process.
- Financial management of grants is administered by Business and Financial Services staff.
- Human Resources is responsible for hiring new employees who will be supported by grant funds.
As time permits, the Grants Department can assist project directors in solving problems, interpreting funding guidelines, offering advice on interactions with the funding agency’s program officer, and providing feedback on reports.
Guide to Grant Management
The Grants Department created a handbook titled, Guide to Grant Management, to help new and existing project staff in managing their grant-funded activities. This guide will help increase success while minimizing any problems that may arise.
