The consultants’ report for LaSIP proposals submitted for funding consideration in FY 2014 is available here.
Consultants’ reports, including funding recommendations, for all FY 2013-14 Board of Regents Support Fund competitive programs are now available on the Board’s Sponsored Programs website, https://web.laregents.org. These reports include rank-order lists of proposals recommended for funding, as well as recommended funding levels. A memo is posted with the reports indicating the rank orders in each report for which monies are expected to be available. Please read these documents together to understand which projects it is anticipated can be recommended to the Board for funding.
Applicants should note that these reports constitute official notice of consultants’ recommendations to be considered by the Board. Individual notifications or award letters, upon Board approval, are not provided.
The Board is expected to act on consultants’ recommendations, as well as on campus requests for matching funds to endow non-competitive professorships and first-generation undergraduate scholarships, at its meeting of April 23, 2014.

Typically the Board of Regents receives a considerable number of requests from principal investigators of projects who need to: 1) extend the termination date of their contracts to fulfill the goals of their projects; and/or 2) revise their budgets. The Office of Sponsored Programs attempts to cooperate in these types of requests if sufficient and appropriate rationales have been provided in writing, if they are in accordance with contractual stipulations, and if all documentation arrives in our office by April 30, 2014. We ask that the institution’s Office of Research and Sponsored Programs please distribute this information to all affected PIs.
In order to be considered, contract amendment and budgetary revision requests must be:
- Approved by the appropriate university/college officials, in accordance with contract provisions, prior to transmission to the Board of Regents;
- Submitted separately from required reports
- Received in the Board of Regents’ office at least 60 days prior to the termination date of the original contract, or the most recent amendment to the contract, whichever is appropriate, i.e., no later than April 30, 2014, for projects that terminate on June 30, 2014.
Contractual provisions permit certain budgetary revisions without Board approval; however, Board notification is required. See your contract for further information.
Adherence to these procedures should facilitate the Board’s consideration of these types of requests, ease complications associated with payment procedures (if any are involved), and generally serve to streamline record-keeping.
If you have any questions, please call Christine C. Norton, Grants and Contracts Manager; Ms. Noreen Lackett or Mr. Bryan R. Jones, Enhancement Program Managers; Ms. Zenovia Simmons, Research and Development Program Manager; or Ms. Carrie Robison, Associate Commissioner for Sponsored Programs Administration for questions regarding ATLAS or PKSFI at (225) 342-4253. Thank you for your cooperation.
On March 26, 2014, Sponsored Programs staff provided a comprehensive briefing to the Board of Regents on the Board of Regents Support Fund. The presentation is available here.
