The FY 2015 consultants’ report, with funding recommendations, for the Louisiana Systemic Initiatives Program (LaSIP) is now available here.
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, 2015. 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:
1. Approved by the appropriate university/college officials, in accordance with contract provisions, prior to transmission to the Board of Regents;
2. Submitted separately from required reports;
3. 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, 2015, for projects that terminate on June 30, 2015.
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 concerning this memorandum, please call Mr. Bryan R. Jones, Enhancement Program Manager; Ms. Zenovia Simmons, Research and Development Program Manager; Ms. Carrie Robison, Associate Commissioner for Sponsored Programs Administration for questions regarding ATLAS, or me at (225) 342-4253. Thank you for your cooperation.

eLearning Innovation Grants Program*
In 2011, The Board of Regents adopted its latest Master Plan for Higher Education in Louisiana. The primary goal of the plan is for Louisiana to reach the state SREB average in educational attainment of the adult population. To accomplish this, eLearning must be a primary strategy to help the state expand access to public higher education and to assist the state in its efforts to increase enrollments and degree production.
Recognizing the achievements of the state’s workforce development efforts, institutions must be innovative in their training and delivery of coursework leading to portable credentials. To assist, the Board of Regents eLearning Task Force is actively soliciting eLearning Innovation Grants to support this effort.
Proposals Due: February 23, 2015 4:30 p.m. Central
