Many requirements must be met prior to establishing an account number. Typically, an account number is set up within five business days of receiving a fully executed agreement from the sponsor.
Key compliance items can delay the award setup such as a revised budget due to a budget cut, a change in effort of key personnel, billing/invoicing/payment terms, human subject research approval, animal research approval, institutional biosafety approval, financial conflict of interest training of key personnel, or a sponsor financial contact.
The account setup process includes three departments which all have a role in initiating your grant account number.
ORSP receives the fully executed award and it is entered into Kuali (assuming all compliance needs are met) within 5 business days.
It is sent to Grant Accounting and an account number is created within 3 business days.
- Accounting activates your grant number, associates it to your department and establishes it in the Marquette Financial System. You will be required to complete Authorized Signer Forms.
Note: At times, there may be a need to create separate accounts for a single award. These situations are not standard; credit splits cover allocation and recognition needs.
