Traditionally sponsors make awards to institutions/organizations and not to an individual therefore special processes are in place to allow for the transfer of a grant whether an investigator is joining UNMC or leaving UNMC.
Transfers to UNMC (transfers-in)
When a PI transfers from another university to UNMC, the previous university may relinquish its interest in the award (or application) to UNMC. In this case, UNMC would submit a transfer application to the sponsor. In addition to the standard forms, SPAdmin requires a copy of:
- Relinquishment statement
- Final Invention Statement
- Financial Status Report
- Funded Proposal
- Notice of Award
- Progress Report/Work Statement
In order to have the award set up at UNMC as close as possible to the PI’s start date, early submission of the transfer application is encouraged. Download SPAdmin guidelines for transferring grants in to UNMC.
Transfer from UNMC (transfers-out)
Should a PI transfer to another university from UNMC, UNMC may:
- Relinquish its interest in the award (or application) to the other university
- Propose a new PI at UNMC
In order to have the award set up at the new organization as close as possible to the PI’s start date, early submission of the relinquishment statement is encouraged. Sponsored Programs Accounting can assist with estimating the unobligated balance. Sometimes, the new organization subcontracts a portion of the project back to UNMC. Your grant specialist can help advise you as prepare to depart UNMC. Download SPAdmin guidelines for transferring grants from UNMC to another institution.
