Chapter 19-100: Introduction

The University's policies and procedures on the administration of gifts and endowments are set forth in the Development Policy and Administration Manual. While the administration of private grants is subject to policies and procedures in this Contract and Grant Manual, there are some overlapping reporting requirements from both Manuals which must be followed in the reporting of private grants. However, private grants are considered extramural awards subject to administration under this Contract and Grant Manual. This chapter of the Contract and Grant Manual is intended to summarize and highlight the essential elements of the University's gift policies. Sections 9-200 through 9-600 below summarize gift policies applicable to the campuses and Office of the President. Section 9-700 summarizes gift policies applicable to the University's Department of Energy Laboratories.
