An important and vital aspect of the research enterprise are a project's financial transactions. As a department in the Finance portfolio, Research Accounting is a fully integrated service unit responsible for the post-award financial administration of all University of Calgary sponsored research and restricted funding, including university administered research, endowment income, and other restricted and special purpose funds.
While Research Services works primarly with pre-award activity, Reseach Accounting manages all activities from project set up, revenue deposit, overhead distribution, monitoring of expenditures, and financial reporting back to granting agencies to ensure compliance.
Together with faculties, departments and trust holders, Research Accounting ensures that funds are expended and accounted for in accordance with the terms, conditions and regulations provided by the source of funds and/or policies and procedures of the university.
