Anyone who receives federal grant funding should note recent changes to federal grants policy – the transition to subaccounts and the updated close-out policy under the new Uniform Guidance.  In short, all Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) agencies are moving their grants from pooled accounts to subaccounts, enabling sponsors to track award expenditures at the award level throughout the life of the project, rather than waiting for financial reports.

As we transition from pooled accounts to subaccounts for federal grant funding over the next year, Research Management Services (RMS) and the Institutional Review Board (IRB)/Committee on Human Research (CHR) are collaborating to make the transition easier for PIs.
