New tool for Grant Managers: Account Breakdown Template

October 26, 2018

The HMS Office of Research Administration (ORA) developed an Account Breakdown Template for department grant managers to accurately provide the amount of funds to be allocated to each account for awards with multiple accounts in GMAS. The goal of this template is to expedite processing of awards and account set up. It allows department grant managers to allocate the direct costs and indirect costs for subawards, ensuring that the amounts set aside accurately reflect the department’s intent when drafting subaward agreements and subaward amendments. The template also provides dedicated space for reallocation of funds between accounts, and a tab with detailed instructions to provide guidance. Questions or comments?
