The message below was sent by Mary-Margaret Klempa, Senior Director, OSR regarding Academic salaries paid from Tri Agency grants. This is being widely communicated to ensure that we are in compliance with this regulation. Please read carefully. Take note that while this memo addresses Tri-Agency regulations, it applies to many other granting agencies. Any academic salary support to be charged to restricted research funds should be looked into carefully before finalizing an offer letter and/or processing labor distribution appointment forms.
Research and International Relations is pleased to announce that the Office of Sponsored Research (OSR) has returned to the James Administration Building, as of Monday, May 13, 2013. Due to extensive flooding in the James Building in February, McGill temporarily relocated OSR staff off campus. Thank you for your support, patience, and flexibility during the period while we were displaced. If you have questions, please contact the OSR at 514-398-3996 or by email.
As previously communicated, the Tri-Agency (NSERC, SSHRC and CIHR) conducted a financial monitoring review at McGill in 2010 that now requires us to address significant concerns pertaining to the management of grant funds – more specifically, elements of McGill’s control framework for the administration of grant funds. A Steering Committee and Advisory Committee at McGill were created to direct and validate solutions proposed by the Tri-Agency Response Implementation Group (TRIG) to address the Tri-Agency recommendations.
