To streamline the way startup extension is granted, ABSO has created a DocuSign template to facilitate the approval process. Faculty who wish to request to request an extension of time to expend against their startup funds should complete the form at least 30 days before the expiration date. Please be reminded that startup funds cannot be extended beyond the end of a faculty member’s probationary period except for a compelling reason. In addition, expenditures that exceed the startup budget will be the responsibility of the faculty member’s home department. Refer to the AAD Startup Funds Guidelines for additional information.
The Extension Request form has embedded conditional routing. It will be routed to the designated reviewers and approvers based on the faculty’s home college. Users will only need to enter the name and email of their Department Chair and Admin when initiating the form.
Please feel free to share this information with any staff or faculty as appropriate.
