How to Access FRG Funding?

In general, you should use the Fordham Purchasing and Accounts Payable systems for the expenses approved under your grant. This means that you will be submitting purchase orders or check requests accompanied by invoices. In particular, note that you may not pay an individual (such as a Research Assistant or an independent contractor) directly: you must submit paperwork to get them into the Fordham system before they start to work.

To familiarize yourself with university processes for expenditures, you should review the handbooks from Accounts and Human Resources (the Administrator's Manual), available by clicking "Guidance" on the Office of Sponsored Programs website. Your department secretary may be able to assist you with the process for the type of expenses you have.

All requests to use your grant funds must include:

• Hard copy memo including your name, FRG 20XX - 20XX (XX = appropriate years of funding), and a brief explanation of your expense making clear that it complies with your approved budget
• The appropriate Fordham Accounts Payable or HR paperwork, completed with everything except the budget numbers and authorizing signature
• Any required documentation attached as hard copy originals (e.g., receipts, invoices)

These materials should be sent to the following address:

Collins Hall B33, Postal box 6
