Post-Award Grant Administration

Congratulations! You've received a notice of award.

Log in

Use Romeo to upload your proposal and notice of award.



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.


Conduct research

Please consult the Tri Agency Financial Administration Guide for eligible expenses. Tri-agency grant holders should apply to the TRU Research Training Recognition Fund for course release.
