Managing Research Grants

The Manage Research Grants web pages are intended to provide you with the information you need to effectively and efficiently manage your research funding. Here you will find links to external research resources, useful handbooks and presentations geared to researchers, along with explanations on forms and procedures.

This site provides an overview of key post award processes including grant set-up, spending grant dollars, grant reporting, and grant closure.

Depending on the type of grant an Accounts Administrator is available to assist you at any time during the grant cycle. Please see the available list of Account Administrators for Fund 500 and Fund 400 cost centres.

In addition, researchers can obtain information within their Faculty from their Faculty Research Administrators.
