SPARC is responsible for negotiating the final terms and conditions of an award (Non-industry).
If the award has any regulatory compliance such as Human Subjects, Animal subjects, or rDNA please visit Compliance Website. The award will need protocol approval(s) and in some cases a congruency review to avoid any spending restrictions
Once the negotiations are finalized the award will be given to the Grant Specialist assigned to the responsible org. An R-fund will be generated by RCA and notification sent to the PI, Department Administrator, and Grant Specialist. If this is a collaborative award which includes other institutions, industry partners or consultants/sub-award contracts and/or consulting agreements will be executed between the Contract Specialist and third-party entity. The Contract Specialist will send the PI an email requesting confirmation of the details in a Sub-out scenario.
The Office of Sponsored Projects and Research Compliance (SPARC) will identify contracts subject to E-Verify. This will be noted on the award email from SPARC. Rice is required to electronically verify work authorization for all employees (including students) and visiting faculty paid from or cost-shared on a Federal contract that includes the E-Verify clause.
