Awards and Contracts- Setting up an Award

The Division for Sponsored Programs and Support reviews all grants providing external support of research, instruction and training, or public service projects.

A grant agreement can be in the form of a contract, memorandum of understanding, grant, award, CRADA (Cooperative Research and Development Agreement) etc.

If you receive a grant agreement, please make a copy for your office and forward the original to the Division for Sponsored Programs & Support at STOP 8046 with a completed Contract Review and Approval Form (CRAF).

If the award comes to the Division for Sponsored Programs and Support from the funding agency, we will send a CRAF and a copy of the award to you for your approval. After your review, you must return these documents to the Office for Sponsored Programs and Support for approval signatures.

The Director of Research Contracts will review the award documents. If all terms and conditions are acceptable to ISU, the award will be accepted and appropriate signatures will be obtained.

A fully signed document will be emailed to you and the Office of Grants and Contracts Accounting.
