  • Externally Sponsored Research:  Fund Number Range Expansion and Roll-up Fund Remapping

    April 11, 2016

    The range of funds being utilized for externally sponsored research has been expanded.  The expansion will provide for clearer identification of the funding source and adds the ability to report on contributory sponsored agreements.  Research Accounting Services has been working closely with Corporate and Foundation Relations to ensure grants from foundations and corporations are not classified as restricted gifts when they should be classified as grants.  The redefined series of funds beginning with 21 through 24 will be designated as contributory sponsored agreements to account for contributory sponsored agreements.  Funds starting with 41 through 44 will be classified as the exchange transaction counterparts to the 21 to 24 series.  The 45 through 48 series will be used to track state, state clinical trials, local and industry sponsored clinical trials.  The 8 series of funds will be used to manage federally funded awards.  The entire hierarchy is available for review on the Comptroller’s Office website.
