About Contract and Grant Accounting

Nova Southeastern University's Contract and Grant Accounting department safeguards the university's sponsored programs by managing all restricted accounts. This includes gifts, internally designated research, and contract and grant awards received from federal, state, and local government agencies and private sources. The department ensures accurate budgeting, recording, and reporting for all funds. 

Grant accountants handle expense invoicing and collections, while collaborating with the Office of Sponsored Programs throughout the award lifecycle, from pre-award budgeting to post-award reporting. For a detailed breakdown of grant account duties, refer to the Division of Responsibilities manual.
