PIs and project staff should work closely with their grant specialist during the last few months prior to the end of the project period to ensure that all sponsor requirements are satisfied and the project is completed and closed in compliance with sponsor policy. Fund-specific closeout policies and procedures are outlined in the Project Administration guide:
- Closing Cost Reimbursable Sponsored Research Funds (5-Ledgers)
- Closing Fixed-Price Contracts (5-Ledgers).
- Closing Campus and Community Programs (9-Ledgers)*
- Closing Campanile Funds (C-Ledgers)*
- Closing Research Support Funds (2-Ledgers)*
*Please note: Discretionary funds (including most 9-ledger self-support activities), all gift funds, and research support funds are not transferable to other organizations or individuals. In the event a project director retires, transfers to another university or otherwise leaves SDSU or SDSURF, research support funds will revert to SDSURF. All other existing funds under the project director’s name will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis to determine reallocation.
