    Allocating Costs Effectively: How to Divide the Pie 

    December 5, 2022
    2:00 – 3:30 pm EDT * Webinar
    3:35 – 4:30 pm EDT * After the Show * Talk with the Faculty Directly!

    Working with faculty to assign the cost of resources to a project poses a challenge, especially when those resources benefit multiple (yet highly related!) projects. Articulating a solution to distribute costs among projects that is acceptable to sponsor, institution, and PI is one of the trickiest in research administration.  You may know general guard rails; but, is the approach defendable? Come join our panel for the presentation and follow-on “Ask the Speaker” session addressing the allocation definition and acceptable practices. In addition to informative background, the panel will work through case studies that may feel instantly familiar and challenge you to produce clever solutions.

    Format of webinar: 90-minute presentation, followed by 55 minutes of discussion.

    Financial Reporting at the Departmental Level and Strategies for Successful Collaboration with the Central Office 

    October 27, 2022
    2:00 – 3:30 pm EDT * Webinar
    3:35 – 4:30 pm EDT * After the Show * Talk with the Faculty Directly!

    Central offices take responsibility for submitting official institutional Financial Reports to sponsors; however, ensuring the data is accurate requires a partnership with the PI and their Departmental Research Administrator/s. There could be pending transactions, commitments, adjustments that the department has submitted but that have not cleared the financial system. There could be pending requests for budget changes or extensions. Departmental Research Administrators often have information that the central office is not privy to, so communication before and during the Financial Report preparation is essential. In this Webinar, we will discuss best communication practices between central and departmental offices related to financial management and reporting.

    Format of webinar: 90-minute presentation, followed by 55 minutes of discussion.

    • Identify areas of risk in Financial Reporting
    • Learn best practices for ensuring an efficient process and data integrity in Financial Reports
    • Share tips for effective cross-departmental communication and collaboration

  • Recorded On: 09/28/2022

    In this webinar we will look at roles and responsibilities in research administration through the lens of 3 institutions. We will examine the difference between responsibility, authority and accountability as impacted by institutional policies and procedures and sponsor terms and conditions. We will also use case studies to identify how gaps in roles and responsibilities can create challenges for an institution, and we will discuss ways to mitigate identified gaps.

    Roles and Responsibilities: How to Assess and Create Clarity 

    September 28, 2022
    2:00 – 3:30 pm EDT * Webinar
    3:35 – 4:30 pm EDT * After the Show * Talk with the Faculty Directly!

    We each have a role within our institution that includes various responsibilities, and we each have an understanding of that role and those responsibilities.  But what if others with whom we work and interact have a conflicting understanding of our role and responsibilities?  What if they expect more from us than we believe we are responsible for?  Or, perhaps worse, what if they don’t acknowledge the responsibilities we believe we must fulfill!  What if something goes wrong on a project – who is responsible?  The PI, the institution, the administrator?  Most of us find ourselves at some point in our careers trying to figure out just what our roles and responsibilities are, or perhaps trying to help a someone else, such as a PI, understand theirs.

    In this webinar we will look at roles and responsibilities in research administration through the lens of 3 institutions.  We will examine the difference between responsibility, authority and accountability as impacted by institutional policies and procedures and sponsor terms and conditions.  We will also use case studies to identify how gaps in roles and responsibilities can create challenges for an institution, and we will discuss ways to mitigate identified gaps.

    Format of webinar: 90-minute presentation, followed by 55 minutes of discussion.

    Upon completion of the webinar, participants will be able to:

    • Identify gaps in institutional roles and responsibilities
    • Describe how to determine what authorities may be delegated
    • Identify who is responsible for a particular task or activity
    • Describe the difference between responsibility, authority and accountability

    In January, OSTP issued NSPM-33 implementation guidance for federal agencies. The guidance refers to the use of DPIs, or Digital Persistent Identifiers. This session will be an educational session on DPIs – what they are, how they work, and how they can be an important part of a researcher’s workflow. In particular, this session will cover information about ORCID as currently the only DPI that meets the requirements listed in the OSTP guidance.

    Excel Tips for Pre- and Post-Award Administrators – Part I

    Do you use Excel to analyze and report data? If so, you’ve probably asked yourself, "Why does this take so long? Is there a better way?" If you use Excel for budget development, you have probably asked yourself, "How can I develop a budget more quickly/accurately?" In this intermediate-level session, you will learn how to use tables, formulas, pivot tables, and conditional formatting that will help you navigate your path to success. This is a 90-minute session and participants should bring their own laptop to the workshop. Excel templates will be provided on the day of the workshop for participants to use as they follow-along. Adequate time will be provided for participants to personalize the templates for use back home. 

    Participants will:
    • Examine formatting conventions that effectively communicate key information and/or highlight variances in reports. 
    • Learn how to use select Excel functions, formulas, and tools for reporting. 
    • Learn how to use select Excel functions, formulas, and tools for budgeting.
