Grants and contracts are awarded to the Santa
Clarita Community College District or to the College of the Canyons
Foundation. They are not awarded to an individual who may be the
initiator of the grant. The Santa Clarita Community College District or
the Foundation accepts the programmatic and fiduciary responsibility for
all grants and contracts awarded. As such, the College bears ultimate
responsibility for fulfilling the objectives of the project and for
complying with all fiscal, legal and contractual requirements.
Project Directors (PDs) or Principal Investigators (PIs) have a number
of critical responsibilities. In general, PDs or PIs are responsible for
carrying out all tasks that were specified in the proposal which, when
funded, becomes a legally binding contract. These include:
Implementation of project activities.
Purchasing and maintaining equipment and
Supervising staff and subcontractors, as
Preparing and submitting quarterly, interim,
and final reports, as may be required.
Ensuring project evaluation and quality
Integrating or institutionalizing the project
at the conclusion of funding.
However, the PD does not work alone. Ongoing
assistance is provided by the Grants Development Office, Business
Services, Facilities, Human Resources, and other offices as needed.
All Project Managers of grant awards will participate in a Project
Manager Orientation where they will be presented with a handbook
containing the necessary information to manage their grant funds in a
fiscally responsible, regulatory compliant and timely manner based on
the terms of the grant guidelines. Please consult with Kiyoko Koski,
Grant and Categorical Accounting Manager, for questions and assistance:
