Services

The Office of Grants and Contracts Accounting is dedicated to serving the post-award needs of investigators and departmental administrators by providing a post-award accounting function for all awards received by the University. The office is responsible for establishing accounts for new awards in the University accounting system, entering the appropriate budget and overhead information for each award, and preparing all billing and financial reporting as required by the sponsoring agency. The department also participates in the administration of awards received by the Uptown campus and the Center for Bioenvironmental Research. Assistance is provided to 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, and coordination of the annual A-133 audit.

Grants and Contracts Accounting follows a cradle-to-grave management concept, in which one accountant is responsible for an award from inception to closeout. This practice of using a single point of contact should eliminate uncertainty and provide a consistent relationship between the investigator and the office. However, any staff member can offer assistance in the absence of the department's assigned accountant.

If you have any questions, or would like to speak to someone about your award(s), please feel free to call, e-mail, or just drop by the office. Someone will be happy to assist you.
