Responsibilities for submitting documents to meet award terms and conditions are shared at CSULB by the PI and ORSP. Actual reporting requirements vary by award, but most awards typically require both periodic progress and financial reports to be submitted to the sponsor. Details of the reporting requirements to the sponsor are normally outlined in the sponsor's notice of award.

The Principal Investigator is responsible for the progress reports on the deliverables associated with the award. The Office of Research and Sponsored Programs is responsible for completing financial reports.
