Award documents take many forms depending upon the type of sponsor and project. SPFAC is responsible for processing all award documents. All documents require University approval and many documents require signature by the official institutional representative authorized to sign on behalf of the institution. At UL Lafayette, this is the VP for Research (as designated by the University President).
Upon receipt of fully executed award documents or other proof of award, SPFAC will setup a fund in Banner and notify the PI of the Banner information.
