Reporting & Monitoring
Many funding agencies require ongoing reporting and monitoring to ensure that project expenditures and activities continue to meet their requirements. The Principal Investigator works with Research Services and Research Accounting to report to the funding agencies on how the funds have been used. It is a good practice to review reporting requirements ahead of applying for a funding opportunity and make sure all necessary resources are in place for financial and scientific reporting before the project starts.
This section addresses financial reporting, progress reports, financial monitoring, and site visits of an externally sponsored research project.
