I am self-isolated, quarantined and/or at home caring for a sick family member and am unable to submit my grant by the published deadline.  May I request an extension?

Most of our federal sponsors have released guidance regarding reporting deadline extensions:

  • NIH: Will allow projects affected by COVID-19 to delay submission of any financial and performance reports, if the project provides proper notice to the grants management specialist. Delays may not exceed one year.
  • NSF: NSF has automatically extended the due date for submission of all final project reports and Project Outcomes Reports due between March 1 and April 30, 2020 by 30 days. However, projects should be aware that NSF cannot issue new awards or supplemental funding if there is an overdue final report. NSF has also automatically extended the closeout period for awards with end dates between November 30, 2019 and April 30, 2020 to 180 days.
  • DOD: The DoD will allow projects to delay submission of financial, performance, and other reports on active awards up to three months beyond the normal due date.

If the project anticipates needing an extension or delay on reporting deadlines, please contact ORA (SOM/SON) or the Campus Award Management Team (CAMT). TBS/PAFM remain fully operational and will be preparing reports according to the due dates in the system.
