OPAM Things to Know

The Office of Post-Award Management (OPAM) will be developing topic specific information related to sponsored research funding. This information is intended for faculty and their support staff who work with grants/contracts and will inform and guide on policies and procedures of both the university and specific sponsors.

Articles will:

  • Focus on subjects that are common to most awards
  • Answer frequently asked questions on award management (e.g., how do I get a no-cost extension, what is required to rebudget funds, my PI is leaving UMass; what do I do now?
  • Provide “hands on” guidance including links to sponsor information, online portals, etc.

Our goal is provide readily accessible resources to assist in the successful management of awards. The Office of Post-Award Management (OPAM) staff is available to assist with any questions or concerns you may have.
