This resource is for Department, Research, or Financial Administrators who are responsible for managing sponsored awards in their departments. Whether you are new to Boston University, or just need a refresher on award finance, this pack can be used as a “one-stop shop” for your Post-Award-related needs and questions (i.e. upon award set-up to close out).

The Post-Award Onboarding Pack (pdf) provides a useful introduction to managing an award, including Administrator responsibilities, common questions, available resources, and a fairly comprehensive list of contacts. You should be able to find answers and guidance for many general questions, but do contact your Post-Award RA for specific questions relating to your Awards.

If anything in the pack is unclear, or something is missing that you would expect to be included, please email Sponsored Programs at
