Funds of the State University of New York are handled by pre-established policies of the Research Foundation at Stony Brook and in accordance with the individual provisions established by the Sponsor. Since the policies of the Research Foundation are subject to the Sponsor's rules and regulations, there may be individual cases in which the latter are more restrictive. The Office of Research Services is responsible for monitoring compliance and approving requisitions before they are processed by Purchasing.
Our policy is to take the following into consideration: processing requisitions in accordance with general Research Foundation Policy, but having additional flexibility to serve the unique needs of the Project Director for prompt and dependable action.
Please note: Effective July 1, 2000 the requirement of prior review and pre-audit of IDC funded purchase requisitions, travel reimbursements, personnel changes, journal transfers and other expenditures and encumbrances by the Office of Grants Management was eliminated. Responsibility for the proper processing of these transactions was delegated to the administrative units involved (Accounting, Procurement, Human Resource Services).
