The organization must agree to the terms of the LOA before any payment is processed.

  • Program Execution

    If the scope of an approved program or activity changes, organizations must submit such changes via the Biogen Grants & Giving Portal in advance of such changes. Biogen will review the scope changes and assess whether funding for the activity should continue.

  • Reconciliation

    Recipient organizations must confirm receipt of funds and attest that funds were used for the purposes described in the contract. The approved use of funding must be reconciled, or assessed against the actual use of that funding, and reconciliation must be documented. 

    Failure of organizations to appropriately reconcile by the due date may delay further funding or cause denial of further applications.
