Administrator Responsibilities

The Post Award Research Administration - Roles & Responsibilities Guide outlines the roles and responsibilities of the Principal Investigator/Account Holder, Department Chair and/or Dean, Department/Faculty Administrators, and Research Finance and Financial Services.

As research funds are awarded to individual Principal Investigators and/or to the institution, the university has a stewardship responsibility to ensure the funds are utilized for the designated purposes for which they are awarded and to comply with corporate and sponsor policies and guidelines.

This shared responsibility is distributed to several stakeholders, including the Principal Investigator, the departments and faculties, Financial Services and other central operations.
