Establishing a Research Account
Before you begin spending
- You must provide ORS with a copy of the application if you did not go through the Office of Research Services at the time you applied for funding,
- You must provide ORS with a copy of the award announcement, research agreement or terms and conditions of the grant, so that we know the amount of the award, when the grant starts and ends, what expenses are eligible, if there are any special or unusual conditions and what the reporting requirements are,
- You must apply for and receive certifications for human ethics, animal care or biohazards, and
- You must sign an Accountabilities Form acknowledging that you are responsible for all spending on your account.
A few important words
about Start and End Dates
The start date is normally the date on which work on the project actually starts. The end date establishes when the award ends and spending terminates. The rules differ from one funding agency to another as to the eligibility of any spending that takes place before or after these dates. It is your responsibility to know and follow these terms.
