Effective 3/1/2017, the Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP) has resumed responsibility for review and processing of labor distribution (LD) adjustments and Retro Requests (>90 day LD adjustments and Other-than-personnel-services (OTPS) cost transfers).

Due to these changes, Andrew Bedotto and Christine Carrizosa have taken on new responsibilities within FOC.
