Sponsored Cost Accounting
Contact us for information on oversight of financial compliance, reporting, billing & receivables and audits of sponsored projects received by the University.
The PeopleSoft grants portal provides online financial information about awards and projects. It allows tracking by award and/or project and segregates expenditures, encumbrances, and pre-encumbrances by sponsor and cost share. The portal includes transactions that are not recorded as University financial transactions, such as cost share facilities and administration (F&A), waived F&A, and third party expenditures. The portal also includes billing and payment information on grants which is done at the Award ID level.
