Information needed for an Extension Without Funds (EWOF)
The recipient may initiate, without prior approval, a one-time extension without funds to the expiration date of the award for a period of up to 12 months, as long as the extension without funds does not involve a change in the approved objectives or scope of the project. The recipient shall notify the Grants Management Specialist in writing at least 30 calendar days prior to the expiration date of the award. The notification shall state the additional time needed, the reasons for the extension, and the work to be completed during the extension period. The recipient must be current with all financial and technical reporting requirements and be in compliance with all other terms and conditions of the award. This one-time extension without funds may not be exercised merely for the purpose of using unobligated balances. An official modification to the award document must be issued by the USAMRAA Grants Officer to extend the period of performance. If a project is granted an extension, the USAMRDC ORP (HRPO/ACURO) approvals must continue to be obtained.
How do I transfer my award to my new institution?
A transfer request will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis and at the discretion of the Grants Officer. Requests should be submitted to the Grants Officer through the Grants Management Specialist. An organizational transfer of an award will not be allowed in the last year of the (original) period of performance or any extension thereof.
