Grant policies and procedures
The terms and conditions applicable to grants funded by SFARI are set forth in the Policies and Procedures document (latest revision: 1 December, 2016). Detailed guidelines on the procedures for submitting deliverables are also outlined in this document. These policies and procedures apply to all autism research grant awards. Investigators and their institutions must abide by all applicable laws and regulations, including those governing the conduct of research on humans or animals.
All SFARI-funded investigators and all investigators using SFARI resources must adhere to the guidelines outlined in our Acknowledgment Policy.
Each grant mechanism has unique characteristics, such as duration, funding levels, eligibility requirements and project requirements. These requirements are outlined in the individual Request for Applications (RFA) for each award mechanism, as well as in the Award letter.
SFARI deliverable deadlines
Investigators and their financial administrators, as well as any additional staff members as needed, will be granted access to a web-based tool, proposalCENTRAL (pC), to use for all aspects of award management, and must use said tool for deliverable submission. All web forms (Activation Agreements, EFT Payment Information, Reallocation Requests, Progress Reports, Carry Forwards and No Cost Extensions) are available in the Deliverables section of pC. Financial Statements can be accessed and must be completed online in the Budget section of pC.
