cost share

When applying for external funds to perform research or sponsored project the total cost of the project is considered to have at least two components: that portion which will be covered by an external private entity or public agency (federal, state or local); and that portion which is covered by the University (sometimes in conjunction with an external third party). The portion covered by the University (sometimes in conjunction with an external third party) is considered to be cost sharing or matching revenues.

cost share5
  • Tuition waivers by UNO are part of this grant’s (fellowship) cost share commitment.
  • The business manager or P.I. is responsible for ensuring correct general fund or restricted cost-sharing account numbers on routing forms.
  • P.I. is responsible for compiling the certifications for cost sharing.
  • If Support Funds are reduced, ORSP may reduce its cost share proportionately.
notification of award
  • Rebecca Drake notifies the Principal Investigator (P.I.) of the award by phone.
  • Rebecca will send out a notification to those P.I.’s not funded.
  • Awards announced in late Spring
  • Contract sent from BoR to ORSP in late May for review/revision. P.I.’s signature is needed on budget page of the contract as a statement of assurance.
  • Contract is then sent back to BoR
  • BoR sends executed contract back to ORSP within the first two weeks of June
budget setup account numbers
  • DeQuindra Rouzan, ORSP, sets up the budget after receiving the executed contract from BoR
  • Budget setup is sent to G&C to open an account for project based on final awarded amount.
  • G&C issues an account number for the award and then enters the budget in PeopleSoft
  • DeQuindra Rouzan sends out electronic email with the account number to the P.I.
budget setup account numbers8
  • G&C sends the new account to Financial Services who in turns issues a speed key (24 hour turnaround)
  • If there is restricted cost share associated with the account, a 142XX cost share account will be set up and a separate speed key issued for the account
  • A general fund 103XX cost share account would also have its own speed key
  • Once ORSP receives the speed key, DeQuindra sends speed key and budget setup to the P.I. via email
  • DeQuindra will also meet with the P.I. to review budget setup
awarding the stipend
  • Fellowship recipients are not G.A.’s
  • No paperwork goes to Graduate School
  • A GA receives a salary for work performed through payroll
  • Fellowship recipients receive a check cut by Accounts Payable

awarding the stipend10

  • Amount of award; Look at budget set up
  • Purchase Req should include speed keys for prime account and any other account contributing to the stipend i.e. cost share, departmental
  • If more than one funding source pays for the stipend, i.e. prime and cost share, make sure the Purchase Req stipulates the exact percentage to be charged to be each account each time a check is to be cut
