Recommendation Details
Text of Recommendation
Direct Cal Poly to strengthen its administrative and management controls and processes for supporting the allocation of expenses to sponsored projects. Updated processes could include: • Implementing a standard documentation and retention process to support the allocation of publication costs that benefit multiple awards. • Requiring Principal Investigators or other designated staff to both document and justify the allocation methodologies used when charging expenses to sponsored projects near the grant expiration date. • Performing reconciliations at the end of each summer program to verify that the costs charged to sponsored projects were appropriate based on the number of program participants.
