The Business Center oversees the day-to-day financial and sponsored research management for the department and is comprised of one business manager, two assistant grants managers and two purchasing support personnel.
Responsibilities within the Business Center are described below followed by the chart of assignments by faculty group.
Under the supervision of the Business Manager and a member of the Business Center, the Assistant Grants Manager’s primary responsibilities are pre- and post-award activities related to MAE home based faculty with research grants both internal and external to the University. Assistant Grants Managers are responsible for maintaining a comprehensive knowledge of the faculty member’s research portfolio and providing thoughtful and effective guidance to principal investigators on how best to utilize their research resources for both sponsored and discretionary research funds. The assistant grants manager serves as a resource for faculty, students, researchers and staff on policy and procedural inquiries related to grants management and financial activities of the University. The assistant grants manager assists the business manager with the implementation of departmental processes and changes to workflow, policy or procedures as required. For more details on submitting proposals, please see the Doing Research and MAE page found here.
Orders should be routed to the Purchasing Department - email@example.com. While some individuals have been granted the ability to purchase goods on their department card, it is advised that all orders be routed to the Purchasing Department unless other arrangements have been previously made. If your vendor is in the internal marketplace, you cannot purchase from this vendor on your own personal credit card/T & E or Department Purchasing Card as there are University negoiated prices already established. You can view available and suggested vendors in the PRIME portal. Reference materials for buying & paying for goods and services can be found in the Information and Training button on the PRIME portal.
Travel and expense reimbursements are submitted through Concur and you must include the PI last name in the Header Report Name, along with a summary of your expenses. NO paper reimbursements will be accepted. If you hold a University netid you have been automatically granted access to Concur. Concur can be accessed from the PRIME portal or www.princeton.edu/concur. Reference materials for travel and expense can be found in the Information and Training button on the PRIME portal, and a new one-page guide will be available soon.
