Grants and Contracts

What We Do

The Office of Grants and Contracts collaborates closely with our stakeholders (Principal Investigator/Project Manager, Faculty, and University community, Sponsoring agencies, and other External entities) to ensure financial compliance with federal, state, and local regulations as well as university policies and procedures. We are responsible for management of expenditures, proper accounting and financial reporting of these externally sponsored program accounts. We are responsible for the cash management of these sponsored program accounts. In addition, we collaborate with the Office of Sponsored Programs and other University departments during audits and desk reviews of these sponsored program accounts. We assign a grant accountant to the award/project to review, monitor, and approve transactions related to the grant as part of the day to day operations.
