Good Afternoon Principal Investigators, Business and Grant Managers,


During the life of a sponsored project, adjustments that have significant implications, for example, a change in the original project objectives, change of PI, or changes that have significant budget implications may require prior written approval before the change can be implemented.


Depending on award terms and conditions, some changes require sponsor prior written approval; others may be approved internally by Sponsored Project Administration(SPA).  It is important to coordinate with SPA and review the award terms and conditions for prior approval requirements.  


All prior approval requests must be submitted to SPA for authorized official signature and approval.


If you’d like to learn more about when to request, who is responsible and how this process works within SPA, please review to our Prior Approvals Procedure.


Feel free to reach out if you have any questions,






Note for your planning purposes:  I will be on vacation from April 3 returing April 22.  There will be assigned coverage.
