Post-Award: Managing Grants
A sponsored program is an activity which receives external support that carries with it conditions regarding the expenditure of funds, such as requiring a tangible (e.g. a written report) or intangible end product, or obligating the College to return support if project objectives are not realized. In contrast, a gift is support which has no stipulations of this kind and can be used by the institution as agreed upon with the donor.
The mission of the Sponsored Programs and Accounts Receivable Office is to help the MCW community achieve its educational and research mission by providing efficient and effective post award management support for sponsored projects. This mission will be accomplished while maintaining responsible stewardship of sponsored projects as directed by the values of our office and the applicable federal, state, and agency regulations and policies. The Office ensures effective communications with appropriate College offices concerning grant reporting and oversight responsibilities, and strives to provide professional and quality customer support and services.
