The USC Lancaster Office of Grants Coordination monitors
grant account expenditures, project end dates, budget revisions,
and account changes.
When a grant is awarded, the office will consult with the
Principal Investigator about spending the grant funds. If
the grant award covers payroll expenses, the grants administrator will coordinate
the personnel request. All
expenses charged to the grant will be submitted to the office.
We also serve as liaison between grant recipients, the Business
Office, and Contract & Grant Accounting (USC Columbia) to coordinate
grant reporting and closeout.
However, the Principal Investigators and their departments
are ultimately responsible for ensuring that all grant funds are
expended in accordance with grant stipulations and preparing required
reports for the funder.
