Using Your Funds

Once a research project has been set up in PeopleSoft, it is the responsibility of the principal investigator to ensure that funds are used in accordance with the terms of the agreement, sponsor guidelines, U of A policies and by the end date of the project. Principal investigators must closely monitor their expenses to prevent over-expenditures in their research projects. Amendments may be necessary to projects, and the RSO will assist researchers with administering those amendments. In most cases, sponsor approval is required before an amendment can be implemented. Further information is available under the various sections outlined here.
