Forms are an integral part of sponsored programs. Some forms are used during and prior to a grant application, while others are used during the execution of a sponsored program to report back to the funding agency.
There are several formats being used, primarily by government sites. Some of these document types require specialized readers, (e.g., Accessible FormNet, Formflow) and store only a data file on your local hard drive. It is good practice to save both paper and digital copies of all forms you complete.
Following are some suggested forms that can be used internally by TCUs):
- Grant Proposal Routing Formobtain institutional approval for a grant/contract application prior to its submission. Before significant investments in time are made in developing a proposal, the concept, budget and personnel implications, should be discussed with the author's supervisor and other personnel who may have useful perspectives on the feasibility and implications of the proposed project.
- Prior Approval Formseek approval internally for specified types of changes to grants and/or grant budgets.
- Requisition Formsubmit a purchase requisition.
- Retroactive Cost Transfercertify reassigning an expense from one budget to another retroactively.
- Monthly Report Formsubmit a report monthly; required of every sponsored program director.
