Are you responsible for managing sponsored project funds? This webinar may be useful to you as it will provide guidelines for preparing and submitting financial reports for sponsored projects and the closing of related funds on a timely basis once the projects are terminated. The responsibilities of both the units and the Office of Grants and Contracts are discussed. Topics will include:
• Purpose of closeout
• Compliance and administration
• Closeout responsibilities
• Tools to enable the closeout process
• Overview of Report of Expenditure Worksheet (ROE)
• Other closeout issues
• Project closeout checklist

A Webinar is a presentation that is given over the Internet and you will hear the audio portion by calling into the conference phone number provided or by listening via your computer speakers. You will not have to go to another location or leave your desk. If you would like to ask a question on-air during the Webinar, you can use a microphone or telephone to communicate your question. Otherwise, you can use the chat box to send comments and questions to presenters.

Space is limited and we are asking individuals within the same office to arrange for a conference or meeting room in their office area and share one registration. The necessary equipment includes a computer with Internet access and a speaker or conference style phone with the mute option. Depending on the number of individuals in the room, a projector may also be helpful in displaying the Webinar presentation. If you are able to make these accommodations, please send an e-mail to the address above as to who holds the registration and who will be joining them. This will assist us with tracking participants.

Please note that registrants will receive a confirmation message from the GoToWebinar system. It is recommended that you register ahead of time. GoToWebinar will send a reminder e-mail one day prior to the event as well as one hour before the event. This message will contain the connection URL and the teleconference number for the Webinar. It is recommended that attendees log in approximately 5-10 minutes before the start of the session in order to allow enough time for software configuration if you have not used GoToWebinar before.

Prior to the actual webinar date, we strongly recommend that you test your connection with GoToWebinar to ensure that you can join and hear successfully. Via the link below, you can connect to a test session.
