PIs/PDs are responsible for initiating expenses once an award has been made. For example, they need to request that the BSC arrange to charge award-approved future personnel expenses to the award account or arrange to purchase supplies needed for the project.

PIs/PDs must ensure that project funds are expended and documented according to the sponsor's guidelines. Federal sponsor requirements and guidelines are contained in OMB Circular A-21 and OMB Circular A-110. All sponsor requirements can be found in the award terms and conditions.
