The Award Lifecycle

Breaks Between Budget Periods

When an ongoing award has not yet received the next year’s funding increment or OSP has submitted a request for a no-cost extension, and/or the PI needs to set-up HR/Payroll paperwork, etc. to meet internal deadlines, then a Break Between Budget Periods continuation may be requested and approved through OSP and GFA via a Contingency Fund Availability Form (CFAF).
