Online Preaward Request System



The Online PreAward Request System provides the ability to process PreAward requests electronically. 

A PreAward is an approval to incur expenditures related to a specific contract or grant prior to the receipt of a fully executed award from an extramural sponsor.  To determine if seeking PreAward authorization is appropriate under the circumstance, please review Campus Policy 550-80.  Such policy is intended to:

  • Identify the circumstances in which a PreAward authorization is appropriate;
  • Identify documentation requirements;
  • Establish PreAward limitations (e.g, expenditure and timeframe);
  • Outline the required steps in the approval process.
