Support for Existing Grants

The staff within the Research Administration & Support team of ROADS assists in bringing an awarded project to the operational phase where it is then transferred to Research Finance for post award financial management.

This assistance may include the refining of project budgets; organizing sub-agreements and transfers to and from other institutions; working with researchers and funding agencies to develop mutually acceptable milestones for selected projects; and authorizing the opening of new research accounts.

In certain situations the Research Administration and Support team may act as an institutional liaison clarifying non financial policy questions and/or procedures.  

The following information provides an overview of the sequential process associated with support for existing Grants.

Stage 1: The Agreement/Contract review

Stage 2: Establishment of a research account

Stage 3: Managing an award or project

Stage 4: Financial management and reporting

Stage 5: Amendment to an agreement or a contract (exception - institutional funding CFI, MRI ORF-RE,  ERA projects)

Stage 6: Transferring funding to other institutions (co-investigators)


Additional support for existing grants may also be provided by the administrative offices listed under Other Research Support.
