Establishing an Institutional Budget
Upon conclusion of any negotiation and receipt of fully executed award documents or other proof of award, ORS forwards it along with other pertinent information to the Office of Accounting Services for assignment of a Fund, Organization, Program (FOP) and entry into Banner. The Office of Accounting Services (OAS) reports to the Vice President for Finance and Administration. The OAS is not part of ORS or the Office of Vice President for Research. Once the PI/PD receives notification of the project FOP, funds may be encumbered or expended against the project.
