Lifecycle diagram

Welcome to the VCU Division of Sponsored Programs “Navigator” tool. Navigator is organized to reflect the phases of a typical sponsored project. Use the Navigator to find information relating to what you are working on. You may have an action that must come to the Division of Sponsored Programs for review and Authorized Organizational Representative (AOR) approval. Or, the sponsored project activity could involve another department. Navigator is a map of the overall process.
