Pan Distribution

The Project Authorization Notice (PAN) is a notice sent via email to notify the PI and designated departmental personnel that a project has been accepted and a fund established.

Once the PAN has been issued, work may begin on the project and costs may be charged to the fund (provided the period of performance has begun). A copy of the award document will also accompany the PAN.

The PAN highlights information of the award document that the PI and departmental personnel should pay particular attention to, as well as provides general information about the project, such as the documentation (IRB, IACUC, Award Documents), budget, cost sharing, personnel, and any associated subfunds.

Departmental financial managers may contact their OSP representative for additional access and features.
