F&A Update
Faculty who received a portion of returned facilities and administrative (F&A) funds from their grants have until June 1, 2020 to spend those funds. F&A funds are subject to state-appropriated funding rules and therefore must be expended prior to June 30. The university retroactively placed an assessment on the F&A funds of each campus unit to support a portion of a 60 million dollar project to address the aging underground electrical distribution system on Main Campus. Poole College is covering the amount assessed on the college and not mandating a reduction in F&A returned to faculty. However, if you received an F&A return and know that you do not need your full funding prior to June 1, please follow up with Brian Thomas as the college can use any unspent F&A towards other expenses as appropriate.

Spotlight on Sponsored Research: David Henard, CLEAR Technology Transfer and Metric Building
David Henard was awarded $91,902 from the NC Department of Transportation to conduct research in support of the Department's knowledge management program known as CLEAR - Communicate Lessons, Exchange Advice, Record. The CLEAR program is designed to enhance communication among NCDOT units, create feedback loops and sharing of institutional knowledge, create a portal where lessons learned can be submitted and vetted by subject matter experts, and establish a mechanism where lessons learned can be easily accessed. Henard's research will enable the Department to understand the habits and cultural shifts necessary for a successful launch, develop training and implementation material, and develop measures of success.
4/9: RISF Internal Grant proposals due by 5 p.m. via InfoReady
5/4: FRPD proposals due to Brian Thomas by midnight
