The Sponsored Projects Office is responsible for oversight of grants and research contracts - from approving budget proposals before submission to financial reporting.
Our office is located in Room 612 of the Resource Center.
Funding Accountability and Transparency Act (FFATA)
FFATA requires that information on federal contracts and awards be made available to the public via an easy to use single, searchable website. This act was signed into law September 2006; however the requirement for sub recipient information was never fully implemented or enforced. OMB is now requiring sub recipient reporting for all Federal Funded Prime Awards and Contracts dated on or after October 1, 2010. All Prime awardees must report first-tier sub-award information for all sub-awards of $25,000 or more.
NIH SALARY CAP
For FY 2014, the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2014, Division H, 203, Pub. L. 113-76 signed into law on January 17, 2014 includes a provision that states, "None of the funds appropriated in this title shall be used to pay the salary of an individual, through a grant or other extramural mechanism, at a rate in excess of Executive Level II."
The Executive Level II was increased by 1 percent from $179,700 to $181,500 by Executive Order 13655.
This change in the salary limitation is effective for FY14 awards as outlined:
Awards issued between October 1, 2013 through January 16, 2014 (Executive Level II) $179,700.
Awards issued between January 17, 2014 through September 30, 2014 (Executive Level II) $181,500.
Please contact the Grants Management Specialist on your notice of award with any questions.
