I provide all administrative support to researchers who have secured external research funding. This includes financial monitoring as well as annual and final reporting to the various funding agencies, federal and provincial.

Some of the tasks I assist with are:

  • reviewing expense claims;
  • preparing invoices and journal entries;
  • monitoring all financial transactions for compliance with both AU policies and the funders';
  • preparing and processing service agreements, staff appointment forms and other internal forms;
  • and preparing annual and final financial reports to the funders.
