Post-Award Grant Financial Management

Sponsored agreements are awarded to the University on behalf of the Principal Investigator. Primary responsibility of fiscal oversight and technical completion begins with the Principal Investigator.

The Office of Sponsored Programs & Research Post-Award Grant Financial Management is here to assist you in recording and facilitating all financial matters. Since the University is legally responsible for all sponsored agreements, post-award grant management must follow Towson University's Financial Services policies and procedures. Please refer to the Post-Award website and Handbook to ensure that proper policies and procedures are followed.

The Post-Award Grants Financial Management office is here to assist you in all financial matters relating to expenditures and revenues.

  • Assist in the administration of project award
  • Prepare and submit invoices
