Research Accounting Services

Mission Statement

Recognizing the need to become agile and responsive to the needs of the research community, we have developed an organization that will enable us to satisfy the traditional post-award roles and also serve as a bridge to connect these functions with the pre-award activities.  Our intent is to eliminate the bureaucracy and sense of overwhelming that a typical researcher feels when they are awarded a new grant.  Our goal is to proactively meet with the research faculty to train and educate them on policies, procedures and financial systems.

Research Accounting Services provides a wealth of other services that begins when an externally sponsored award is funded.  These services include ensuring adherence to rules and regulation of funding agencies, preparation and submission of financial reports and invoices, and the maximization of cash flow.  Research Accounting Services also provides the management of the Effort Reporting System (ERS), sub-recipient monitoring and service center rate development.  Other reporting functions of the office include the preparation of the Facilities and Administrative
rate proposal, the Employee Benefit rate proposal and the A-133 audit report.


Check out the Research Tab and TUcheckbook tool in the TUportal!

If you have access in Banner to a grant related FOAPAL, you will automatically be granted access to the "Research" tab. The "Research" tab contains a link to the TUcheckbook tool within the "Researcher Resources" channel. The TUcheckbook will allow you to quickly view your available balance on your grant, as well as provide the ability to drill into more details. Features include the ability to drill into labor encumbrances and purchase order balances. Take a moment to explore the features by viewing this training video.

Any questions or feedback on the TUcheckbook tool or the Research tab, should be directed to Jeanette Pastelak at
