Tri-Agency Guide on Financial Administration

Welcome to the Research Services training page for the new Tri-Agency Guide on Financial Administration (TAGFA).  In April 2020, the old Tri-Agency guide to financial administration was officially replaced with the new TAGFA.  The TAGFA requires a new way of thinking about use of grant funds as it strives to achieve a balance between compliance and flexibility for research-related expenditure of Tri-Agency grant funds.

The decision-making authority over the use of grant funds is now left to the administering institution as the Tri-Agency steps away from prescriptive lists of eligible and ineligible expenditures in favor of the new principles and directives-based guide.  Institutions are responsible for providing training on the new guide to their research staff on managing Tri-Agency research funds using the new TAGFA.  

Research Services is pleased to offer these training sessions which will provide a better understanding of how to use the new TAGFA’s principles and directives-based approach to post-award administration of grants funded by the Tri-Agency. 

Below, you will find the link to register for the next available sessions of the training course.  Registration is capped at 20 people in each session to allow better interaction between facilitators and participants.
