Award Administration

All grants, contracts, and cooperative agreements awarded to Duquesne University must be reviewed to make certain that each agreement is supportive of the DU mission and that the rights of the researchers are protected. Because Duquesne University (not the school, department, center, or individual faculty member) is the legal entity for all awards, the award must be processed through the Office of Research to ensure that Duquesne University can accept any conditions imposed on the award.

The Post Award Services Office works in tandem with the Office of Research to provide exceptional service to the University Community as well as external representatives of federal and non-federal sponsoring agencies.  This function reports directly to the University Controller.

For more information, Duquesne faculty can visit Post Award Services in the Controller's section of the DORI Intranet.
