COVID-19 Related Impacts
Many project PI's and administrators are being effected by the negative impacts of COVID-19 and related harships.
Close communication is vitally important. We encourage you to contact agency program managers and other sponsor representatives as soon as possible, in writing and by phone, to notify them of specific challenges and likely cost impacts. Written responses from applicable sponsors that grant permission and approval for changes (and approval for any other costs not normally chargeable to awards) should be requested and obtained as soon as possible. The Office of Sponsored Projects can help facilitate those communications as needed.
Please complete the COVID-19 Impacts Survey and we will have your OSP representative follow-up with you for assistance.
The Vice President for Research (VPR) Office has published a Central Research Operations Guidance for Research Planning and Continuity website consolidating information from each research support department and daily Resesarch Community Updates.
