Research Accounting

Our department supports SFU's research community by providing expert advice, management and reporting of research grants and contracts from external sponsors. We work closely with the university, researchers, funding sponsors and the Office of Research Services (ORS) and ensure that we follow all the funding guidelines and policies.
