Grant Accounting

About Our Office

The Office of Grants and Contracts Accounting is dedicated to serving the post-award needs of principal investigators and departmental administrators by providing a post-award accounting function for all awards processed through the Office of Sponsored Programs and Research and Corporate and Foundation Relations. Our office is responsible for establishing accounts for new awards in the University accounting system (Banner), entering the appropriate budget and overhead information for each award, and preparing all billing and financial reporting as required by the sponsoring agency. Assistance is provided to principal investigators and administrators on issues such as allowability of costs, availability of funds, cost sharing, and general information regarding accounting and costing policies. Other areas of responsibility include grants and contracts accounts receivable, award closeout, record retention, compliance with University Policies and Procedures as well as those of the sponsoring organization, and coordination of the annual Single Audit (formerly known as A-133).

Our office hours are Monday – Friday, 8:00 am to 5:00 pm.
