Advance Spending on Research Funds
There are occasions when commitments or expenses need to be incurred before a research fund has been established. In an effort to facilitate this need, a PI may request establishment of a research fund, prior to the actual award being processed by the University. However, one of the stipulations is that funds needed for the advance spending must be guaranteed. With this in mind, the School of Engineering will now assist in this process by providing a guarantee of funds for PIs who are relatively certain that their projects will be awarded.
