After a Divisional Research and Development Committee approves a grant, the committee chair notifies the Business Office, which in turn moves the funds into the recipient's research account. The grantee may draw on the grant by requisition for actual expenditures or by means of an advance to be settled later by an accounting of expenditures.
The committee will send copies of all grant awards to the Business Office. Copies of the itemized budget will be sent, along with a copy of the award letter, to the Dean's Office to provide some accountability and understanding of how Research and Development Funds are being used. It is our hope and expectation that faculty will be conscientious and accountable, and use funds for the purposes for which they were designated.
