Contract & Grant Accounting

The Office for Contract & Grant Accounting (CGA) ensures good stewardship of sponsored funds and provides support to faculty and staff on post-award financial administration for externally sponsored projects. CGA is responsible for compliance with fiscal and reporting requirements established by federal and state law, agency regulations, Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP), Cost Accounting Standards (CAS), and University policies and procedures.

Once all pre-award actions are complete and the sponsor has authorized an award, the Office for Sponsored Programs (OSP) will transmit the applicable information to CGA in order to facilitate the post-award financial process including:

  • Award set-up in the University accounting system
  • Invoicing
  • Revenue collection, receivable, and management
  • Sponsored financial reporting
  • Compliance review and analysis
  • Audit liaison
