Award Volume / Expenditures

The Difference Between Expenditure Reports and Award Volume Reports

Sponsored activity at institutions of higher education (IHEs) consists of external funding for organized research, instruction, and other activities (such as outreach) and all are collectively referred to as “research.”  Award mechanisms include grants, contracts, and cooperative agreements, and are collectively referred to as “grants.”

Expenditure totals accurately reflect dollars received. The majority of all sponsored activity operates on a cost-reimbursable basis, which means that payment is received after requesting reimbursement for expenses from the sponsor. Expenditure totals are nationally-recognized as a reliable and consistent measure of institutional sponsored program activity, and are used for comparison purposes among peer institutions. 

Award volume reflects the amount of budget authority cited in an award document; thus, award volume totals are an indicator of proposal success and serve as a leading indicator of future expenditures.  At UM, if the award authorizes $5 million for five years, the entire $5 million is counted in year one. If the award states $1 million per year for five years, the award volume report will reflect $1 million in each of the five years. Because individual IHEs may report award volume differently, award volume totals are not typically viable for comparison purposes.
