Effective Date: June 10, 2016
Revised Dates: –
Most Recent Review Date: –


The UALR Office of Research and Sponsored Programs (ORSP) has been delegated the authority to review and submit budget revisions on all sponsored funds. All budget revisions must be routed through ORSP before they can be considered binding and official. In cases where agency approval is required to revise a budget, ORSP will be responsible for obtaining the necessary approval.

To Whom Does This Policy Apply

All UALR personnel working with sponsored funds, both federal and non-federal.


ORSP must review and approve all revisions to agreed-upon sponsored fund budgets in order to ensure that the university stays in compliance with all federal and sponsor requirements.


The principal investigator (PI) must submit a budget revision request to ORSP before making any expenditures based on the new budget. In this request, the PI must include a detailed justification for the revision. The request should be sent to the ORSP grant manager for the sponsored fund.

The ORSP grant manager will review the request and, if it is appropriately justified, work with the sponsor to obtain approval.
