UFIRST – Awards is UF’s tool used to collect award requirements and information including terms, compliance, and financial elements. Ultimately, UFIRST connects to the myUFL Grant system where budgets are finalized for spending. As UFIRST is an award management tool, it tracks the expectations of the Sponsor.
