Financial Services Teams (FSTs)

The mission of the financial services teams (FST) is to provide direct support & guidance to researchers relating to financial administration of research grants and contracts.

The FST is available to :
- act as the researcher's primary contact for all post-award concerns;
- liaise with Financial Services and other units within the University.

The FST will assist with planning and organizing financial activities to support the daily operations of the Principal Investigator (PI), ensuring that financial administration is carried out in accordance with the appropriate regulations & guidelines.
