Site Visits

A sponsor may request a site visit throughout the life cycle of a sponsored research project to

  • Review the Principal Investigator and the university prior to the award to ensure the right fit for the proposed project
  • Review programmatic progress during the life of the project
  • Audit financial activities during or after the project

Research Services is the official contact for external sponsors for financial and review matters. The involvement of Research Services in external visits or audits protects you and your department from possible liabilities.

If you receive a notice for site visits, please contact Research Services (ors@sfu.ca) immediately.
