Award Closeout Process

Closeout is the final reconciliation and reporting of expenses and activities of a funded project. As the award recipient, the university has the responsibility and obligation to close and to submit necessary technical and final reports. Proper closeout of an award is also important for audit purposes.

Projects are closed within 180 days after their end date. As part of the closeout process, the Grant Coordinator sends reminder notices 90 and 30 days prior to expiration to the PI, departmental administrator, department chair/director, and College dean.

Please see Closeout Procedures for complete process and timing guidelines for final expenditures, p-card purchases and/or adjustments for expenditures.

For Additional Information or Questions on the closeout process, please contact the Research Accountant.
