Multiple Sponsor Projects


These projects are established to accept funds from multiple sources that purchase a specific service being provided by UF.  In addition, programs such as I/UCRC memberships are accumulated in a Multiple Sponsor Project.

Some limitations on a Multiple Sponsor Project are as follows:

  • Deposits are limited to no more than $10,000, unless specifically approved by DSP. For amounts of $10,000 or more a separate project may need to be established.
  • No financial reporting obligations back to Sponsor.
  • All contractual agreements (i.e. letters, grants, purchase orders) used must be forwarded to DSP for review and acceptance on behalf of the University of Florida. These should be routed in UFIRST as an Agreement.
  • Projects will incur applicable indirect cost assessment.

To open a new Multiple Sponsor Project, please submit to DSP the following:

  • A UFIRST Proposal with a description of the Services to be provided to the sponsors/buyers and relevant executed agreements/orders.
  • Budget released to a Multiple Sponsor Project will always be equal to cash received.
  • DSP will generate a UFIRST award when the first payment has been received. DSP verifies the payment belongs to the Multiple Sponsor Project and then releases the amount with a UFIRST Award for the Multiple Sponsor Project to be established in Fund 209.
  • Additional cash received will be added to the Multiple Sponsor Project by creating a UFIRST modification (Subtype: Financial>Multiple Sponsor Increase) with a copy of the funding letter, agreement or other correspondence and the check attached. DSP will finalize the modification and  increase the budget available.
