Most of the contract or grant modifications cited above require the same approval as a proposal or an award with the final approval and acceptance by the Vice President for Research. However, some Federal agencies have delegated the authority for certain types of modifications to Sponsored Programs and the Division of Finance.
Requests for modification should be submitted to Sponsored Programs as a Prior Approval/ Reubudget Request (see Statement 4.6). Sponsored Programs will review and approve requests for contract or grant modifications if the authority has been delegated to UNC by the awarding agency.
Requests for changes that require contract or grant modification which require final approval and acceptance by the Vice President for Research will be prepared by Sponsored Programs for approval by the Vice President for Research and the sponsoring agency.
