Research Accounting

Welcome to Research Accounting Services

Research Accounting Services (RAS) assists Principal Investigators and Departmental Administrators with federal and non-federal grants and contracts from the time that a new award is established through the completion of the award. Throughout the life cycle of the award, RAS performs a variety of functions to ensure financial compliance. These core functions include financial reporting, cash management, effort reporting oversight, award closeout, and training and development.

Our goal is to support the financial management and reporting of sponsored research funds through policies and procedures that promote integrity, transparency, and accountability. RAS performs these duties and responsibilities in order to safeguard sponsored award funds, and maintain good relations with sponsors and Temple personnel.  With our commitment to compliance, stewardship and maintaining the public trust, we contribute to Temple’s continuing success as a Tier-1 research institution.
