Grants Administration at Smith College

Grants Administration (GA), an area within the Finance Office at Smith College, is responsible for the post-award administration, from award to close-out, of all externally sponsored research grants, contracts, and awards.  This includes: working with sponsors and Principal Investigators to negotiate contract and award terms, monitoring project budget activity to ensure compliance with college and sponsor policies and guidelines, reviewing and approving sponsored research expenditures, preparing financial reports, and preparing various post-award requests to sponsors (e.g., no-cost extension requests, re-budget requests).  

Grants Administration works closely with the Sponsored Research Office (SRO) to ensure the smooth transition from pre-award to post-award activities, and with Principal Investigators and staff in the post-award administration of those awards. 

The mission of Grants Administration is to provide integral administrative services and support to faculty and staff who are involved in externally-sponsored activities, while ensuring compliance with sponsor regulations and college policies.
