Office of Corporate and Foundation Relations If pure gift funding (award is irrevocable, no specific period of performance) only development/OCFR is involved. If grant (has specific requirements or terms such as: return of unexpended funds, specified period of performance, interim and final technical reports, addresses intellectual property) OCFR works closely with the Office of Sponsored Research and the Office of Research and Cost Accounting –Inform OCFR about activity relating to a private foundation or corporation. –OCFR will work with faculty member, as necessary, to provide background on foundation/corporation, read and/or edit material, help with site visits. –OCFR will let OSR know of contact. If little or no help is required of OCFR, faculty member should work directly through OSR. –If grant, OSR will require review and approval form, budget, budget justification and project summary (must be routed through chair and dean first; OSR needs five days before deadline). –Once awarded, checks should come to OCFR for processing (Elizabeth Castillo at x4637 handles). OCFR will issue interim report reminders; final reminders come from both OCFR and OSR.
