Award Setup


setting up your new award

Please note: this page is not a comprehensive list of all award setup policies, requirements, and processes. If you have questions about the setup of your award that are not addressed here, please contact your grants and contracts officer.

Policies and Processes

If you are awarded extramural funding, ORSP will set up your award in Workday and monitor it throughout its lifespan. After the university receives official notification of your award, ORSP will ensure that all award and compliance issues have been addressed. We will then set up your account so that you can begin your project.

Generally, ORSP is the only entity at UA Little Rock that can approve and accept awards on behalf of the university. The Vice Chancellor for Finance and Administration and the Chancellor will work with ORSP to approve and accept specific awards as dictated by University and Board policy.
