Pre & Post Award Actions

Throughout the project period of a sponsored award, changes may be needed to successfully manage the award. Many changes require the approval of the sponsor agency and thus requests to the agency should be routed to URA for review and institutional endorsement prior to submission to the agency. URA is the official liaison with the funding agencies and official communications to agencies should be coordinated through URA.

The most common project change is the a request for additional time on the project, also known as a No-Cost Extension. In some limited circumstances, URA can approve and implement the NCE without agency prior approval.

All project changes and post-award actions are submitted to URA via AURA.

Note: Progress reports (eSNAPS) are submitted through eRA Commons. They must be routed to URA through AURA. For more information, click here.
