AnSRS4U  – Answers for You

Texas A&M Sponsored Research Services (SRS) and the Division of Research is excited to announce that we will be beginning a series of monthly informational sessions. The sessions are titled AnSRS4U  – Answers for You.  The goal of the sessions is to provide valuable information to our customers.   The sessions will address various research administration topics and issues.  Our target audience is the department and college staff that support the research enterprise but everyone is welcome to attend via Zoom.

SRS is here to provide answers to the research community and we look forward to your participation in these informational sessions as we work together as a team to support the research enterprise.

If you have any questions regarding these sessions or would like to be added to our listserv, please to email AnSRS4u@tamu.edu.

Do you have questions about project payroll?  

  • How does payroll get charged to my sponsored project?  
  • What is the process for payroll corrections? 
  • If my project is subject to a salary cap, how does that affect payroll?

If you have had these or other questions about payroll, you will want to attend the next AnSRS4U presentation on February 23, 2021 at 10:00am.  

Questions are encouraged.   If you have questions that you would like to have addressed, please email them ahead of time to ansrs4u@tamu.edu.
