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

NCURA webinars use the GoToWebinar platform. To confirm that you are ready to participate, please test your browser before joining the webinar, or review the more detailed system requirements.
  • It is recommended that you use a PC or MAC with an updated Internet Browser either Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Edge or Safari.  
  • Make sure you have pop-ups blockers disabled in your Internet browser settings.
  • Wifi is not recommended. The problem with WiFi is signal strength can vary causing bandwidth to increase or decrease.
  • We recommend a wired connection. A wired connection gives a consistent signal and consistent bandwidth. A wired connection provides a better experience.
  • It's better for organizations with low bandwidth to only have the webinar running on 1 computer in a conference room than having 10 individual people running the session on 10 computers at their desks.
  • Audio (sound) is projected through your computer speakers. Be sure your computer is equipped with speakers so you can hear the presenters.
