About Us

Sponsored Projects Accounting is the central, post-award accounting department reporting to the Office of the Controller, which in turn reports to the Office of the Chief Financial Officer at the University of Pittsburgh.  Sponsored Projects Accounting is responsible for central, post-award accounting, administration and management of sponsored projects at the University.  Responsibilities include timely and accurate post-award accounting, financial reporting, invoicing, accounts receivable management and administration of sponsored project funds from account activation to account closing.  To accomplish these responsibilities, Sponsored Projects Accounting works closely with the University’s Office of Research, principal investigators, deans, directors, department chairs, department administrators, central administrative offices, internal and external auditors and external representatives of federal and non-federal sponsoring agencies.  To ensure a proper segregation of duties, Sponsored Projects Accounting is independent of the Office of the Provost, Office of the Senior Vice Chancellor of Research and the Office of Research.
