Guidance for Sponsored Projects Impacted by COVID-19

The Office of Sponsored Projects is available virtually for all of our normal services including prospecting, proposal development and award management support. The OSP team continues to monitor sponsors for specific guidance regarding implications to project plans due to the coronavirus. Please check back regularly for sponsor specific updates, and for how SU COVID guidance may impact your project.

All PIs are required to adhere to our institutional guidance regarding the coronavirus. Specific policies that may impact your sponsored project are below.

Project Continuity Planning

If you are a PI on an active grant or a new award, please complete our Sponsored Projects Continuity Planning Form. This is an optional form used by the OSP to assist faculty and staff with externally-funded projects in identifying potential impacts to your sponsored project due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the related closures.
