Tri-Agency Administration

The focus of this webpage is to provide additional support to members of the U of S research community in the financial administration of Tri-Agency grants. Having strong financial administrative procedures in place helps the university ensure accountability, compliance and stewardship for the grants received from the Tri-Agency. To this end, the Tri-Agencies have required the university to adopt a new business practice of having every Tri-Agency related expenditure go through an independent approval. The function has been named the institutional approver. This page is intended to answer questions researchers may have about the administration of their grants as well as to provide guidance to indivuduals assuming the role of institutional approver.
