Why do salary costs to a sponsored project sometimes get charged to our department 02 account?
Sponsored projects are closed within 90 to 120 days after the end date of the project period. Sometimes SPARs have not been appropriately changed to record the appropriate effort of personnel. When payroll charges are trying to be recorded on a closed project, the payroll system automatically places the unallowable charge on the department’s 02 account.
