When managing projects, we apply processes, methods, knowledge, skills and experience to achieve project goals and objectives and to disseminate and share research results. In this section, you will find detailed information about the successful management of projects through the following stages:
Award management includes all post-award activities that occur between the time the award is established in Drexel's financial system and when the closeout process begins for sponsored program accounts.
Conducting research is not just a scientific activity; it's project management, too. Any project involving multiple activities and deadlines requires management and monitoring. Using simple project management techniques will help you keep control of your research project.
The purpose of effort reporting is to provide a reasonable basis for distributing salary charges among direct and non-sponsored activities.
Project funds should be closed in a timely way to satisfy obligations to the sponsor and university accounting.
