The data below reflect median (midpoint) award processing times by types of sponsor. Individual awards may take a shorter or longer time to process based on a number of factors including: the time it takes to obtain any necessary compliance documents from the PI, compliance committee review times (if required), the compatibility of the sponsor’s award terms and conditions with University requirements—for example, the right to publish—and/or any other additional risk factors that may need to be managed by obtaining the PI’s and/or Chair/Dean/Director’s informed consent prior to the establishment of the award.
