Grants and Contracts Accounting
 
Goals
 

As a part of the University of South Alabama Business Office, the Grants and Contracts Accounting Department serves as a support function to the University's overall mission. The primary goal of the department is to support the sponsored research activity of academic departments by serving as the central fiscal administrator for the post award function of sponsored research. The Grants and Contracts Department is located in the Administration Building, Room 362.

 
The department is responsible for creating and maintaining restricted accounts on the Financial Accounting System for all sponsored projects. The office is responsible for approving certain charges to accounts, managing cash drawdowns, managing the accounts receivable cycle and providing cost accounting training to departments involved in sponsored research. Based on the requirements of each sponsor agency, Grants and Contracts prepares financial reports required by those agencies. Additionally, Grants and Contracts serves as a resource for fiscal issues identified by Principal Investigators, Departmental Administrators or the Office of Sponsored Programs.
