The Office of Justice Programs (OJP) revised its “Policy and Guidance for Conference Approval, Planning, and Reporting” webpage on Friday, October 5, 2012 in order to provide the most recent and comprehensive guidance related to conference costs. The Conference Webpage can be accessed via the following link: http://www.ojp.gov/funding/confcost.htm
Following is an outline of changes to the guidance:
To: Principal Investigators and Project Directors, UNH Sponsored Programs Community
This is a reminder that all effort reports for FY12 activity must be reviewed, certified, and received in Sponsored Programs Administration (SPA) by September 30. Please return the completed certifications to your effort certification coordinator/BSC contact, clearly indicating any needed revisions.
Sponsored Programs Administration (SPA) has revised the Sponsored Program Proposal Internal Approval Routing Form (aka “Yellow Sheet”) to reflect new financial conflict of interest in research requirements. It is available on the Research Office website.
At the request of the UNH Disclosure Review Committee (The faculty committee responsible for the oversight of the financial conflict of interest in research program, aka DRC) we have amended the current Yellow Sheet language regarding financial conflict of interest in research to read as follows:
Research Administration has completed an analysis of workload and will be changing the Grant and Contract Administrator (GCA) for several departments, effective July 1st.
The revised “Find your Grant and Contract Administrator” listing includes two notable changes: New Hampshire State agreements for all departments will now be handled by a single GCA, Dianne Hall, and each department is now paired with both a primary GCA and an alternate.
