Dear Principal Investigators and Research Administrators:
As a result of the Chancellor’s Office Audit in September, Research & Sponsored Programs has updated our policies and procedures for both pre-award and post-award. In the next few weeks, as we rollout these updates, our department will send email communications describing the changes. The Chancellor’s Office full audit report is available at https://www2.calstate.edu/csu-system/transparency-accountability/audit-reports/Documents/sponsored-programs/2018/1869SponsoredProgramsNorthridge.pdf.
The updated cost sharing and monitoring policy and procedure is attached. As a reminder, Principal Investigators with cost matching responsibilities must submit at least semi-annual financial status reports on cost-sharing, unless the grant states a different time period.
Should you have any questions regarding this matter, please contact Mahyar Sadri at x 6414, or me at x3498.
