Did you know?

The federal government maintains a federal awardee performance and integrity information system (FAPIIS) which is a database containing information on federal awards and award recipients.  Why is this important for us? Federal agencies (NSF, NIH, USDA, etc.) are required to notify FAPIIS of any overdue reports (at the one-year overdue point); those agencies are also required to check FAPIIS before making an award to an organization or PI.  An overdue report can cause a delay or prevent an award entirely.  This impacts not only the PI but an entire organization.  Be sure to submit your reports on time and if you need help, reach out to the grants office!

Upcoming Events:

Grant Writing Workshop – Thursday, August 25, 2022 from 10am – 2pm in Paresky 201.  The grants office is hosting a writing workshop focusing on the following topics:  how grant-writing is different, the importance of an abstract/elevator pitch, how the grants office can help.  Group work, sharing and receiving feedback, and time to write will be key ingredients of the session.  Please let the grants office know if you plan to attend.
