During the lifespan of an industry-sponsored research program, there may be times where a financial “health check” or audit is requested. It could come by way of routine request, or the sponsor may be observing red flags warranting further investigation. In either case, an audit doesn’t have to be a frightening or adversarial exercise. In fact, audits provide an opportunity for both parties to uncover issues, concerns and challenges encountered in the execution of a project. It affords the project manager, project sponsor and research administration team an interim view of what has gone well and what needs to be improved with the project to ensure it is successfully completed.

University-Industry Engagement Advisor has tapped a team of experts from the accounting firm Baker Tilly to lead this program, scheduled for tomorrow, November 13th, that will demystify the audit process so that both parties can come away with valuable insight into the financial well-being of a research project: Financial Audits of Industry-Sponsored Research: What to Expect and How to Manage the Process.
