Award Set Up

The Research Services Office (RSO) is responsible for processing notices of awards, negotiating, approving and signing agreements for research-related activities. The RSO also sets up projects in PeopleSoft for all research funding received by the University of Alberta.

The information in this section outlines what is needed to set up a new project for research funding received by the University.

Please note that all notice of awards and/or research agreements received by a principal investigator directly from a sponsor should be forwarded to the RSO immediately. If the research project is being conducted as a University-related activity, the principal investigator may not personally sign the agreement.

For further assistance with setting up a new award, contact your faculty-assigned Research Facilitator or a Research Services Administrator.
