Collecting Funds from the Sponsor

  • Special Funds Accounting (SFA) is responsible for collecting funds from the sponsor. 
  • Each project, in its awarding document, has specific requirements for either billing the sponsor or drawing down funds from a designated web portal.
  • Please note: If the sponsor is a private company or industry, Appalachian will require advance payments in the contract agreement.
  • SFA staff will review all grant or contract expenditures for reasonableness prior to submitting the request for payment to the sponsor.
  • In the event of sponsor non-payment of the invoice submitted, collection procedures (PDF) are invoked.
