  • Setup & Closeout - Set up projects in the Finance System in a timely manner, manage financial close upon project completion, and process extension requests on awards.
  • Invoicing and Cash Management - Invoice agencies for sponsored projects that are not set up on Letters of Credit or auto-payments; manage cash receipts, and post payments to appropriate projects
  • Sponsored Projects Compliance - Review Cost Transfers/journal entries (JEs) and Payroll Expense Transfers (PETs) for secondary approvals, as well as review PO Requisitions, Cost Share, and Participant Support for compliance; help promote CU-Boulder's compliance with federal, state and private fiscal and reporting guidelines, university policies and procedures, and Generally Accepted Accounting Principles
