Dear Principal Investigators and Research Administrators:
The University Corporation procedure for handling advance requests has been revised per a recommendation of the University Auditor.
The revised procedure contains the following major changes:
- The new ‘Advance Request Form’ must be used to request advances from TUC
- ‘Advance Request Forms’ must be signed by the person receiving the advance and by an authorized signer on the project.
- The amount of the requested advance cannot exceed 75% of the expected total expenditure for employees and Principal Investigators. Students are eligible for advances up to 100% of the expected expenditure amount.
- TUC personnel will monitor open advances on a monthly basis and work with the appropriate individuals or PI’s to clear outstanding advances.
The ‘Advance Request Form can be found at http://www.csun.edu/sponsoredprograms/forms/
Should you have any questions, please contact me at x2698 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
