Note after the award: for trips that are not included in the initial budget, but will later be deemed necessary for the project, please check the agreement to get a reprogramming language/guidelines. In the absence of such a language or where the budget is not covered by the guidelines, an application should be submitted to the Agency for approval (accompanied by an explanatory memorandum/budgetary revision). In most cases, a modification/modification of the price is made by the sponsor. A: Most Commonwealth contracts and grants contain rebudgeting guidelines/authorization requirements, but not all are created equal. Check the agreement to see if any instructions are provided. If there is none, it is strongly recommended that a formal request for a rebudget (including transfer requests) be submitted to the Agency for approval. This report is a measure of transparency, but does not affect the administration`s ability to pursue the Treaties. Under the COP Framework Contract and almost all other COP rewards, ownership of capital goods will be transferred to the Commonwealth after the project is concluded or terminated. If PSU wants device ownership to be transferred to the university, contact the COP agency to request a formal transfer of ownership. . .
