Non-SPS Account Task List • We’ve received funding from a donor and now have it properly classified and deposited Next – I need to better understand my residual accounts . . .
Types of Residual Accounts Residual Funds from fixed price contracts/agreements Royalty Funds from Intellectual Property Residual Accounts
SPS INSTRUCTION NO. 4 1. The contract is fixed-price (i.e., there is no provision for return of unexpended funds to the sponsor.) 2. All payments required under the contract have been received by Purdue. 3. All required project work is complete, and all reports and other deliverables have been provided to the sponsor. 4. All expenses related to the project have been properly charged to the account. Residual Funds
Residual Funds The unexpended direct cost balance in the account can be transferred to a residual fund in the appropriate department. http://www.purdue.edu/sps/accountmgmt/i4.html
If the residual balance is > 15% of the total award, an explanation should accompany the request for transfer. Proposal is fully costing projects – not inflating Not make a profit Reimbursement for cost Residual Accounts
Residual Accounts Discussion Item: “Due to a miscalculation, the grant was undercharged for the PI’s April salary. If the correct amount had been charged the amount remaining would have been less than 15%.” Is this adequate justification to transfer the residual funds?
Residual Accounts Discussion Item: “The funding was given for a project at Company A. Two students worked on the project, the first stayed several weeks and the second several months. Beyond the work that was accomplished there was no interest from Company A to continue the project.” Is this adequate justification to transfer the residual funds?
Royalty activity, which is generated from Intellectual Property, is also tracked in residual funds. Intellectual Property Policy (VIII.4.1) http://www.purdue.edu/policies/pages/teach_res_outreach/viii.4.1.htm Residual Accounts
Residual and Royalty (2201XXXX funds) are expended like general funds and expenditures must be in compliance with University Policies Note: these funds are chargeable for fringe benefits Residual Accounts

Why do we have CEC? As a land grant institution, Purdue bears a major responsibility to provide continuing education, professional development activities, and other extended accesses of learning and discovery to the public. Continuing Education and Conference
Responsibility and Authority for Continuing Education and Conference Activities (VIII.2.1) http://www.purdue.edu/policies/pages/teach_res_outreach/VIII_2_1.htm This policy assigns academic, administrative, and fiscal responsibility for all CEC activity sponsored by a college/school, department, or other agency of the University. Continuing Education and Conference
Why do we have a CEC policy? To address how the University administers these unique activities Establish the authority for approving rates and registration fees Continuing Education and Conference
Why are there separate funds for CEC activities? Institutional tracking of credit (2209XXXX) and non-credit (2210XXXX) programs Residual funds transferred to 2203XXXX Unique Allowable Expenses Continuing Education and Conference
Why do we use Letter of Agreements in CEC? Outlines and provides approval for conference activity, budget, and fees Details funding sources and where residual funds should be transferred Ensure that the event is scheduled on the University calendar Continuing Education and Conference
Why do we need to be careful with grant funded Activities? Charges to grant must be A-21 allowable costs Charges must be within grant project period Food must be specifically budgeted and approved in sponsored project budget Continuing Education and Conference
Why it is important to quickly close Accounts? Good Customer Service Want to know fiscal status of the project Post within grant project period Tracking receivable balances Continuing Education and Conference

Why the Policy was created: Department’s lack of PRF Funds Lack of flexibility with university funds Dean’s requested the ability to use University funds for hospitality expenses Allowable at Peer Universities Hospitality
Hospitality Expenditure Policy (II.1.1) http://www.purdue.edu/policies/pages/finances/ii_1_1.html Guidelines are based upon an understanding that food and beverage expenditures are allowable only when clearly required to advance the mission of the University and are appropriate to the occasion. Hospitality
Hospitality Hospitality Expenditure Policy (II.1.1) • Expenses should be reasonable in amount and necessary to fulfill the mission of the University. • Consistent treatment for expenses • Have to be excluded from cost study
Allowable hospitality expenses have been divided into three general categories: Meals or refreshments served during business meetings, Meals for prospective employees, visitors, guests, or donors, and University receptions. Hospitality
Hospitality Special Note on Sponsored Programs Funds • Sponsored program accounts may be used if the expense is specifically approved in the budget and is in accordance with sponsor and University policy. 546305 - Conference Meals 533380 - Conf Arrangements for CEC events only 533615 - Hospitality/Food Service
