Grant Administration Overview

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 grant development process.
  • Financial management of grants is administered by the project director and DCB's grant accounting specialist.
  • 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 with resolving problems, interpreting grant agreements and program guidelines, offering advice on interactions with the funding agency’s program officer, and providing feedback on reports.

The Grants Department created Grants Calendar (link coming soon) to develop an annual grants strategy. The Grants Department with faculty consultation has created a Grant Management Worksheet Template to assist with grant management activities.
