10/7/15 - Thursday seminar tackles fiscal aspects of grant management

Successful grant management requires a common understanding of processes and systems by both the principal investigator (PI) and the accounting staff with prompt distribution of information and effective communication between academic/research units and central administrative offices.

Join the Office of Research and Economic Development at Mississippi State for a "Fiscal Aspects of Grant Management: Cradle to Grave What to Do" seminar on Thursday [Oct. 8] from 2-4 p.m. in the Bost Extension Center theater. Sandy Williamson, the executive director of research fiscal affairs at MSU, will lead the session.

This seminar will cover the fiscal aspects of grants management while reviewing the PI's role and responsibility for administering sponsored agreements, explain established policies and procedures, and provide an overview of the central support services available to the PI.

Seminar topics include the post-award process, terms and conditions, certification of time and effort, federal audit focus, common audit findings, resources, departmental and PI responsibilities, and compliance for salaries and personnel, purchasing goods and services, and good faith cost estimates.
