RESEARCH GRANT SET-UP

Depending on the type of grant or contract, the University receives the "notice of award" from the various funding agencies as follows:

Tri-Council Grant/Contracts
Arrow Research Financial Services
Provincial / Federal / Other Grant/Contracts
Arrow Office of Research Services (ORS)

Once Research Financial Services receives a "Notice of Award" from a funding agency the grant or contract then enters into the post-award administration cycle. The following steps must occur before a Principal Investigator (PI) can spend funds on a research grant/contract.

Steps for Receiving Research Funding

  1. Research Accounting e-mails an Accountability Document (AD) to the PI for signature
  2. PI assigns delegated signing authority (if applicable) and has delegate(s) sign the AD
  3. PI returns AD to Research Accounting
  4. Research Accounting confirms ethics approval
  5. Cost centre is set-up and funds are transferred (Note: only one year of funding at a time is set-up)
  6. If applicable, all overhead expenses are charged up front so that funds are not accidentally spent
  7. E-mail sent to PI notifying them of access to their funds
  8. Access to eReports is provided and training is arranged, if required
