Grants & Contracts Accounting is pleased to share some exciting news and recent changes. We are now comfortably located with the central finance team on the 4th Floor of Twamley Hall, Room 401. We are enjoying our new space and welcome visitors!
Recently we hired a Senior Grants Accountant who will assist with various projects such as data analysis, cash management and financial monitoring of grants and contracts. Please join us in welcoming Laura Geir. Laura has extensive accounting experience and project management skills and we look forward to sharing the future of Grants & Contracts Accounting with her.
We are also happy to announce the addition of our newest Grants Officer, Lana Beaton. Lana has served as our part-time Effort Manager this past year, and has recently transitioned to a part-time Grants Officer. She will continue her duties as Effort Manager while expanding her grants and contracts portfolio. Lana is quickly adapting to her new role and brings great enthusiasm and positivity to the team.
Our intent is to become more efficient and widen communication lines with the campus community by providing one direct point of contact. Delivering the best possible service in the most valuable manner is our primary focus. We are striving to enhance and strengthen management of grants and contracts at the University and we are excited to share this new journey with you.
As a first step, we have redesigned portfolios for the Grants Officers. Each college or unit will now have an assigned Grants Officer. This restructure will require a great deal of cross training between staff as well as considerable updating of databases and the PeopleSoft Grants Module. We are requesting your patience and support during this transition period.
