Manage Funding

Funding management process,

In addition to managing scientific progress, you need to carefully manage your funding throughout the life of your project. This includes reviewing financial reporting, ensuring expenses are eligible, and requesting any necessary amendments or subgrants.

Once a research project has been set up, researchers can access their funding and begin their research. From this point on, most of the research administration activities will involve financial and progress reporting.

RAS provides post-award support to researchers in managing account activity and balances and ensures that all sponsored research funds are administered in compliance with the policies of the funding agency, U of A Policies and Procedures (UAPPOL) and Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP).

Additional Information

Financial statements are generated by RAS in accordance with the sponsor's reporting requirements. This information is also available on the Grants Life Cycle, Project Management icon found on the Researcher Homepage. Please contact for further guidance if a sponsor is requesting an ad-hoc financial statement.


If invoicing is dependent on a Principal Investigator (PI) deliverable, the PI should send an email to stating that the deliverable is complete and the sponsor can be invoiced.
