Grant Administrators

Pre-Award Team

Proposal Submission

CAHNRS Faculty lead WSU in proposal submissions. Depending on your unit, your primary point of contact will be the Pre-Award Team or your grant administrator*.

We ask faculty to submit pre-award/proposal requests via our intake form. Please include all of the RFA/FOA attachments in your request and budget if you have one started. A member of our pre-award team will be assigned to your proposal and will reach out to you with the next steps.

*Please contact your Grant Administrator directly for Faculty in CSANR, SOE, CMEC, and Energy.

If you are unsure who your Grant Administrator is or need immediate assistance, please contact CAHNRS Grant Manager, Sophia Hutton

Post-Award Team

Grant support after the grant is received

Sponsored Programs Services (SPS) is WSU’s post-award office. Grant administrators work with SPS and ORSO as needed to assist faculty in managing their awards.

WSU’s policies and procedures on travel, purchasing, and personnel apply to grant funds, as well as any other terms and conditions required by the sponsor.

For questions on how to manage your grant (allowable expenditures, when it is necessary to contact the sponsor for prior approval, no-cost extensions, subcontracts, re-budgeting, expenditure tracking etc.), please contact your grant administrator.

Our post-award team provides the following examples of support:
  • Grant expenditure approvals in Workday
  • Award routing (agreements)
  • Grant balances – including how to read your reports
  • Cost share
  • Effort certification
  • Subcontract initiation
  • Blanket research MOAs
  • General grant question
  • And more…

Please use the comprehensive list below to find your unit grant administrator.
