For sponsored projects administered by SRS, the Project Administrators conduct 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 to a general SRS box. Individual EPAs will be forwarded to the appropriate PA for approval.
