Grant Accounting

To fiscally manage sponsored projects, Principal Investigators (PIs) at CSU Stanislaus work closely with their assigned grant accountant in Financial Services.

Grant accountants work not only with PIs but also with administrative staff and sponsoring agencies to ensure compliance with the terms of grant agreements, contracts, University policies, federal regulations and relevant law. They assist with the development of expense and payroll reports required by the funding agency, and maintain a fiscal system of internal accounting and administrative control.

Grant accountants audit grant expenditures daily for compliance and invoice or request drawdowns from the sponsor on a consistent basis as allowed by contract.
