General Administration Resources


Account Set Up

After the review, negotiation and acceptance of award package, the Director of Sponsored Programs will meet with the Project Director and administrative support staff to conduct a new-award meeting. At the new award meeting, the awarded budget is reviewed again and the Financial Reporting System (FRS) budget rules are determined. The Director prepares the award package, transmits the package, plus a copy of the proposal, to the Controller for account set up. The Director works closely with the Controller in the account set up process to confirm financial terms and reporting requirements, to ensure the FRS budget provides the required level of detail, and to resolve any other post-award concerns. The Controller will notify the Director of the financial account number assigned to the award.
