IARI | Manage Your Project

Once you receive funding for your research, you will be responsible for overseeing and managing your grant. From technical and financial reporting, to subcontractor and consultant agreements, to tracking your finances and renewing your funding, there are a number of components that must be considered during the post-award period.

IARI is here to assist you as you navigate this process and can serve as your liaison to other offices on campus that assist in post-award support.

These offices include:

  • SIS Dean’s Budget Office: Manages all financial transactions on research projects.
  • Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP): Manages non-financial post-award functions including the negotiation and acceptance of all sponsored awards and agreements on behalf of American University, award account set-up, and award close-out.
  • Grants and Contracts Accounting (GCA): Prepares and disseminates internal and/or external financial reports of all sponsor research activities; invoices vendors; and manages the initial sponsored project account setup, budget setup and/or modification and final project account close-out (with coordination of OSP).      

BI Reporting

The BI Reporting tool allows you to monitor and track your project expenses, as well as receive weekly automated reports. This will assist you with the preparation of financial reporting to the funder. Trainings are available here.
