Advance Account Procedures

On occasion a PI will receive notice from a sponsor that a pending proposal has been selected for funding.  If a need exists to incur costs in advance of final execution of the award document, a PI may request an advance account.  Please contact OSPA to discuss whether an advance account would be appropriate for your project.  GCA will make the final determination as to whether an advance account is appropriate.
