Grant and Contract Services (GCS) is the WHOI office that interacts directly with the grant and contract offices of all agencies (federal and non-federal) that provide support to Principal Investigators (PIs) through the funding of research and technical proposals. GCS is authorized by the Board of Trustees to negotiate terms and conditions of those awards and to submit proposals to agencies on behalf of the Institution and our PIs.
When an award is received, GCS alerts relevant areas of the Institution about the award and establishes the project(s) in the WHOI accounting system. The accounting system is a legal requirement of our funding agencies and also provides the data necessary for PIs to manage the financial aspects of their projects. GCS works closely with the Controller’s Office, which is responsible for the accounting computer systems and all financial aspects of WHOI.
