The award document identifies the due dates of such reports. The ORSP typically can answer questions about the format of progress reports. The progress report is usually required before the agency will award subsequent year funding.

Award documents typically identify due dates of reports, usually 30 to 90 days after the termination date of the project. The ORSP can answer questions about the format of final reports. In some cases the agency provides a special document.

(Contractual / Consultant  / Sub recipient  Agreements link )
Sub-contracts/Sub-grants are made to the institution from other institutions or entities that serve as prime contractors or grantee to funding agencies or sponsors. Generally, the stipulations governing grants and contracts also apply to sub-awards. Dillard considers Consultant (s) a firm or an individual retained to provide professional advice or services for a fee but not as an employee of the performing organization. Allowable costs include fees, travel, and subsistence cost. All consultant payments are comparable to the normal or customary fees charged and received by the consultant for comparable services on non-government contracts and grants If a contract or consultant agreement is over $5,000, the consultant agreements must go through the Office of Business and Finance Procurement Officer. This process will ensure that the university is compliant with consultant agreements. This office will issue an RFP or provide you with a Sole Source form for contractual services. Consultant agreements will consist of services justification, cost benefit analysis, deliverables rendered, duration of agreement, compensation rate, reporting requirement, and any special terms of the award.
