Sponsored Programs Accounting (SPA) provides post-award accounting support in managing sponsored research funds awarded to the university. The SPA office works in conjunction with WPI’s Office of Sponsored Programs, faculty, and staff to manage awards for compliance with federal and sponsor regulations. Some accounting services we provide are fund creation and notification, invoicing and cash management, expenditure review, approval, and reporting. Federal compliance services we provide include effort reporting, sub-recipient monitoring, award closeout, and the coordination of the annual Uniform Guidance, 2 CFR § 200, audit.
