University sponsors are increasingly relying on institutions for the development of adequate systems of internal control for the financial management and administration of and accounting for sponsored projects. An adequate system of internal control includes identifying University officials responsible for overseeing financial and administrative compliance, and ensuring individuals are identified and compliance is incorporated into each level of the sponsored project administration process. Clear identification of the responsibilities for financial administration of sponsored projects at the University is integral to a proper system of sponsored project internal control and compliance.
