RRF budgets are granted through the University’s Office of Research, and are to be used in advancing research in new directions. The Office of Research approves all requests to close an RRF budget. They need to have received, for review, the PI’s final report, a final summary of expenditures, and a final BSR (Budget Status Report) for the RRF being closed. Once reviewed and approved, the Office of Research will send an email with official approval to close. This official email approval should be pasted into a Grant Tracker in the Closing topic.
