Prior Approvals


Prior approval is often required for the following situations:
  • Principal Investigator and/or Key Personnel reduction of committed effort by 25% or more

    • Example: If committed effort was 20% but actual effort is 12.5%, this represents a reduction of 37.5% and would require prior approval

  • The three (3) month absence of Principal Investigator and / or Key Personnel from grant

  • Change in scope of the project

  • Significant changes in the project budget - see individual award documents for specific guidance

  • Deviation from award terms and conditions

  • All sponsor requests for prior approval should be coordinated with your SPA Research Administrator
