Learn More About Post-Award Support

  • The Post-Award Specialist serves as a direct support resource to investigators across campus and disciplines as related to sponsored projects administration.

    They are responsible for fiscal management, human resources assistance, and procurement-related duties related to assigned sponsored projects*.  Using institutional, federal, and sponsor-defined guidelines: they review and assist investigators with budgetary and administrative needs; analyze and produce reports; and provide overall support for grant management. The PAS also serves as a basic resource to help all UCCS investigators achieve a thorough understanding of sponsored program administration by providing workshops and trainings to the campus community.

  • The Post-Award Specialist is available to assist a particular sponsored program or investigator at the discretion of the Associate Vice Chancellor of Research.

    There are a number of priority considerations including:

    • No departmental access to sponsored program administrator expertise
    • No (or very limited) college access to sponsored program administrator expertise
    • Sponsored program awards that generate the full negotiated UCCS F&A recovery rate 
    • Sponsored program awards that exceed $100,000
    • New Investigators or a newly established Research Center
    • Pre-tenure faculty
    • Investigators who identify with an underrepresented population

  • We tailor support to the individual needs of each PIs relating to all budgetary and administrative needs including:

    • Reporting and Reconciliation
    • Recruiting and Hiring
    • Salary Transfers
    • Billing and Payments
    • Travel (Before and After)
    • Equipment Procurement

    Once a PI or Sponsored Project has been assigned to the Post-Award Specialist, a preliminary meeting will be held to define areas to support.

  • We will provide campus-wide Post-Award education trainings and workshops several times throughout the year in order to increase grant-administrative knowledge and expertise.


    All faculty and grant-related administrative staff are encouraged to participate in these ongoing educational opportunities.
