Please use these links to familiarize yourself on the role of the principal investigator, the role of the research accountant and other key research administration areas such as allowable, allocable and reasonable costs (as defined under Uniform Guidance issued by the Office of Management and Budget), proper financial management, as well as other key areas that you may encounter during the life of your project such as change of scope, hiring of consultants, issuance of subcontracts and more.
