Grant and Contract Accounting

"Speeding the pace of scientific progress by reducing administrative burden."

GCA assists the UW community by facilitating the post award financial aspects of sponsored programs, from budget set-up to close.

Over 400 new budgets get set up every month by GCA.

Nearly 19,000 invoices worth over 382 million dollars are sent out to sponsors by GCA each year.

GCA applies over one billion dollars to invoices and budgets every year.

GCA closed over 5700 budgets last year.

Over 2000 financial reports are submitted to sponsors every year by GCA.

GrantTracker allows researchers and PI's to check on the status of their grants from the field.

Effective March 1, 2016, GCA has changed how we provide copies of Journal Vouchers (JVs) to campus. Historically, we have sent paper copies to department box numbers for Indirect Cost Adjustments, Subcontract IDC adjustments, Deficit Transfers and certain Reverse JV’s. Starting March 1st, we began to upload a copy to GrantTracker. This change is intended to provide campus a more dependable method of delivering budget adjustment information.
