Managing Your Project

Congratulations on receiving your award!  Once we receive a copy of your award letter and approved budget, we will set up an account for you to access your funding through the Research Foundation of CUNY ( The Research Foundation of CUNY (RF) is the fiscal agent for all government and private grants and contract awards received by all units of CUNY.

We offer post- award services which are inclusive of providing assistance on personnel (i.e. salary, wages, hiring processes) and other than personnel services (OTPS) such as procuring an independent contractor and other project related expenditures.

Most post-award items are submitted electronically via RF’s E-Services system (i.e. timesheets, payment requests, payments to contractors). OGRA is happy to offer training and technical assistance to anyone with administrative responsibility over a grant in an effort to help them navigate and understand the RF website. Please note that most forms are available online via the RF website.
