Roles and Responsibilities
The matrix below outlines the roles and responsibilities of all individuals and offices involved in sponsored programs, from reviewing the funding opportunity through award, project management, reporting, and closeout. This "roles and responsibilities matrix" was created by WSSU's Financial Transformation Committee according to best practices provided by UNC General Administration to the 17 constituent institutions.
Please use this matrix to understand the key players for accomplishing each task as proposals are developed and submitted and as projects are awarded, initiated, managed, and (in time) closed. As you will see, "O" represents the individual or office that owns the task, while "C" means the individual or office that contributes to that task by providing necessary input.
