Creating a Project in Financial Edge
Once the College has received official award notification, the Grants Administrator assigns a project number to the grant. All expenditures and other financial activity for the grant are tracked using this number in Financial Edge.
The following documents (or copies of) must be provided to the Grants Administrator to establish a grant project:
- Official award letter
- Awarded project proposal
- Awarded project budget
Signature Authorization Form
The Principal Investigator is given a Signature Authorization Form to be filled out. This form is used to identify the individuals permitted to approve charges on the grant and collect their signatures. These individuals, unless otherwise specified, will also be able to view financial activity on the Financial Reporting Tool.
