Office of Sponsored Programs


Seminole State College encourages faculty and staff members to seek external funding for programs and scholarships that support the strategic plan, mission, and values of Seminole State College. The ultimate responsibility for managing these projects belongs to the Principal Investigator or Project Director assisted by the Offices of the President, Sponsored Programs and Fiscal Affairs.  All applications, proposals, and awards for funding, training, and other research‐related activities are made in the name of Seminole State College.  The Board of Regents empowers the President and/or his/her designees to request and accept grants, contracts, and other related agreements on behalf of the College.  No one other than the President and/or his designee may bind the College to a plan of action. 


Seminole State College is required to comply with applicable U.S. Office of Management and Budget, 2 CFR Chapter I and Chapter II Parts 200, 215, 220 and 230, “Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards” and other regulations, guidelines, and instructions in the grant award notification or award letter when receiving federal funds.  In the use of non‐federal funds, the College shall comply with the award agreement, College policies and State of Oklahoma guidelines.


As such, a procedures manual will reference the OMB “Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards,” 2 CFR Chapter 1 and Chapter 11 Parts 200, 215, 220 and 230, the applicable State of Oklahoma guidelines and the Seminole State College Employee Handbook throughout the manual.  Whichever policy is most restrictive will be utilized for federal grants, contracts, and cooperative agreements unless specifically authorized by the funding agency.
