The primary goal of the Research Receivables Negotiations Section for Research Accounting is to recover overdue receivables from sponsors for expenses incurred under their awards. Efforts are made to minimize the amount of time taken to recover funds.



            The University wishes to maintain an amicable working relationship with sponsors. Efforts are made to work with the sponsor to collect amounts due. The first step is to find out why the payments have not been made.  If the reason is the need for deliverables from the PI, then the PI will be contacted to discuss the delivery of the required materials.  If we are unable to get a response from the sponsor by e-mail or telephone, then the Receivables Manager will send a letter to the sponsor. A copy of this letter is sent to the PI and OGCA.  If payment has not been received and/or an appropriate response has not been made by the specified date, then another phone call will be made. If there is no response then the Assistant Controller will send a letter with a copy to the Department Head and / or the Dean.
