Spending Account Setup

All externally funded sponsored research agreements (grants, contracts, cooperative agreements) must be received by OSR and routed to the appropriate Grants and Contracts Officer to review the award for compliance with University policies and to set up a GMS (AWD/GR) spending account to manage sponsored research funds.  

Note: OSR will not establish a GMS sponsored research account until the Office has received formal, written confirmation of an award for a Medical Center program or project.  A mechanism has been established to set up an “At Risk” Account if an award is imminent to enable the PI to incur costs up to 90 days in advance of cost center setup. Please use this link for more information about procedures and restrictions related to At Risk Accounts.
