Following receipt of the award letter and SPAN, please review the funder guidelines in the Sponsored Program Action Notice (SPAN) and record the report submission deadlines. OSP will submit the financial reports on your behalf, while you will be responsible for writing and submitting the narrative reports and any other outlined requirements to the funder. 

Please pay close attention to the method of submission in the guidelines, as many funders require mailed submissions or uploaded submissions onto their database. Thus, the method of submission must be taken into account in order to meet the funder’s deadline. The CFR Office is here to provide assistance and guidance regarding best practices in the stewardship process.
