Post-Award Grant Administration

Congratulations! You've received a notice of award.

Log in

Identify whether your research needs certifications from the Animal Care Committee, the Research Ethics Board or the Biohazard Committee.



If you don't need approvals, the Research Office sends a release-of-funds email to Finance.



If you need approvals, you must apply for certification through Romeo before funds can be released.


Account set-up

Finance creates a research account and the primary investigator receives an email to activate the account and is able to access it through FAST in myTRU.
