Project Payroll

For sponsored projects administered by SRS, the Project Payroll group conducts compliance checks ensuring:

  • Accounts are not overspent.
  • Payroll charges are within the period of the award.
  • Administrative and clerical costs are not charged unless specifically allowed.
  • Foreign nationals are not paid on the account unless it is specifically allowed.
  • Payroll limitations for key personnel are followed.
  • National Science Foundation Salary Policy is followed.
  • National Institutes of Health Salary Cap is followed.

For all EPA’s that include an SRS account, the RFSN route is automatically added so the EPA can be routed through SRS Project Payroll.
