Reporting on Your Sponsored Project

  • At a minimum, the majority of sponsors will request a final financial report
  • In many cases, the sponsor also requests a final technical report of grant activities and outcomes.
  • Funding agencies such as the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the US Department of Education (DoEd) will require annual reports in addition to final reports.
  • The Principal Investigator (PI)/Project Director (PD) is responsible for following the sponsor's reporting requirements. 
  • In many cases Special Funds Accounting (SFA) will complete financial reports without the involvement of the PI/PD; however, if the PI/PD is asked to submit a financial report, it must be completed by SFA.
  • It is the PI/PD's responsibility to complete all required technical reports and send a copy to Sponsored Programs to be uploaded in AGrants.
