Managing the research funding of a large organization such as the University of Kentucky requires coordination among many individuals, both inside and outside of the university hierarchy. Research Financial Services is an integral part of that endeavor, overseeing the financial reporting and compliance requirements of all externally sponsored projects. Our primary goal is to facilitate the management of funds provided to the university by outside entities, in compliance with relevant guidelines, for the purpose of continuing research.
The receipt of externally sponsored funds comes with an expectation of compliance with various guidelines, rules and regulatory requirements surrounding the use of the funds. We welcome the opportunity to collaborate with our campus partners and external sponsors alike as we strive to shape a culture of compliance, supporting our university research community in meeting those expectations.
Research Financial Services prepares institutional reporting information for varying external organizations beyond sponsoring agencies. Some examples include, but are not limited to, the Schedule of Expenditures of Federal Awards (SEFA) and Single Audit report; Homeland Security Grant Funding SEFA 7 report; Biomedical Research & Development Price Index (NIH) survey; and the Higher Education Research and Development Survey (HERD/NSF). Our office also prepares and submits the Facilities and Administrate Rate calculation to the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) Cost Allocation Services (CAS) to establish the approved Facilities and Administrative rates allowable on sponsored projects.
Our organization is defined by specialty area to provide optimal support and expertise in the diverse areas surrounding the financial management of sponsored projects.
We thank you for taking the time to visit our website and look forward to working with you!
