Project Close Out is an administrative process that is handled by a Contracting Specialist assigned to the Contracting Support Division within the Office of Sponsored Programs. The requirements for project closeout are established by contractual provisions and/or agency regulations. The Contracting Specialist will ensure that all required closeout documents are submitted to the sponsor (i.e. final invoice, disclosures on patents and inventions, property, and security).
This policy applies to all Georgia Tech faculty and staff members.
