Award Management

Managing your awards and accounts

You and your departmental administrators are responsible for accurately allocating costs to the project account in a timely manner. Staff in the Office for Research Administration will monitor select financial transactions on the account to ensure that they meet sponsor and university guidelines.

Understanding KC and KFS

After your award is accepted by Indiana University, the Office for Research Administration will record the award in the Kuali Coeus (KC) grants system. An account will also be established (or modified) in the Kuali Financial System (KFS), which is the account number you will use to charge expenditures to the project.

The project director, account fiscal officer, and account supervisor each will receive an email with a link to the IU award summary. This document includes the IU account number, project dates, and awarded amount, among other items, for the specific project.
