Concurrent Session Descriptions. Recordings, and Handouts
Discovering the National Science Foundation: The NSF is one of CSUs main sources of sponsored research awards. Come listen to tips and tricks for both proposal submission and award management. Also, coming in January 2023 there are changes coming to the Proposal and Award Policies and Procedures Guide (PAPPG) see how they will affect you.
During this session we will talk about current trends in audit findings as well as items to be on the lookout for when reviewing your accounts. We will also walk through some CSU specific data and tools that you can use to help CSU minimize the audit risks.
Learn the difference between participant support costs and participation incentives, including definitions, budgeting, and post-award considerations.
With just an hour to touch on the basics lets attach our harness to climb up the mountain of our know-how on preparing an NIH modular or detailed budget proposal and budget justification. Then as we explore new heights, and new forms coming, we can repel our way back to earth as we discuss the added value of knowing details about the attachments needed for these proposals.
As the University seeks to grow its sponsored research enterprise, work with industry is growing and that increase is likely to accelerate. This session will help provide attendees with information on how work with for profit sponsors from the initial discussion stages through project closeout. The session will focus on (1) What budgets for for-profit sponsors must include (2) How PIs can assist the process in their discussions with their technical counterparts at the sponsoring company (3) Key differences between for-profit contracts and federal research grants.
