Post Award Financial Administration Policies


This Manual provides guidance to researchers and administrators for administering sponsored programs consistent with Federal regulations and Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) policy.  Sponsors, especially the federal government, require that funds provided to VCU be used appropriately for the benefit of research and other sponsored activities. The federal government provides detailed regulations in the Office of Management and Budget Circulars A-21 and A-110.  This Manual provides a summary of both the applicable federal regulations and VCU financial policies, in addition to links to resources providing more details, and contact information for individuals who can also be of assistance.
