Cheques Sent Directly to Researchers
Occasionally sponsors remit payments directly to the researcher or the researcher's department. Researchers or administrators who receive such a payment should forward it to the Office of Research and Innovation Services so that it may be forwarded to Research Finance.
Include the following information:
- The researcher's name
- The title of the project
- Any other identifying information to help match the cheque to the project
- If it is a new project to be set up please follow the procedures outlined in Authorizing and Setting Up Projects
Sometimes, researchers get funding "with no strings attached." If this happen, you still need to let ORIS know so we can obtain the necessary information/documentation from you to set up your project.
If you receive money to supplement an existing, ongoing project, send the cheque to:
Research Accounts Receivable
