Tri Council - Monthly Tip

Internal vs. External Funding

Internal and external research funding must usually be segregated and managed in separate research projects.  For example, research funding received from an external source should never be deposited into an internally funded project, such as a Special Research Project.  While exceptions to this rule may apply, these must be approved by Research Accounting, Financial Services.

ERS Update - Itemization of Tips no longer required in the ERS

ERS Update - Itemization of Tips no longer required in the ERS

Claimants using the ERS are no longer required to itemize out any tips on their receipted meals or taxi expenses. This change will result in significant time savings for faculty & staff preparing claims!

Please note that itemization will still be needed for separating out meal costs from hotel bills, and for separating out personal items, such as removing alcohol from meal receipts.
