Award Management Tutorial

Notice of Award

<< Previous Page      Page 2 of 5Next Page >>


The NoA is the official document that states the terms, conditions, and amount of an award and is signed by the Grants Management Officer (GMO) who is authorized to obligate funds on behalf of the HRSA.

The document is formatted into numbered blocks that provide specific information about the award; including administrative information, legislative and fiscal data, and names and phone numbers of grant and program office staff. For multi-year awards, the NoA also includes information on anticipated subsequent funding periods and their tentative levels of funding.

A NoA, showing the amount of Federal funds authorized for obligation and any future-year commitments, is issued for each budget period in the approved project period. A revised NoA may be issued during a budget period to effect an action resulting in a change in the budget and project period of funding, amount of support or other change in the terms and conditions of award.

The NoA will also contain attachments, which spell out additional terms and conditions of the award and enclosures that give further guidance on administrative procedures. The attachments and enclosures contain important information about awards. Recipients are urged to pay particular attention to them.

Copies of the NoA are e-mailed to each successful applicant. Copies may be sent to either the Authorized Representative or the Program Director.
