Can I buy a computer and software with my grant?

Yes, if those items are allowable under the terms of the grant. If these items weren’t included in your awarded budget, you may still be able to charge them to the grant. Contact the Grants Accounting Office for more information.

Can I buy equipment with my grant?

Yes, if the equipment is included in your approved grant budget and was described on your blue sheet. If not, you’ll need to discuss any such purchases with the Grants Accounting Office.

Who do I contact if I need to buy equipment?

Depending on the circumstances, you may need to talk with the Grants Accounting Office, the Purchasing Department, or your department coordinator.

Who signs vouchers and requisitions for grant-related purchases?

Yours is the only signature needed on vouchers or requisitions, unless they are for reimbursements to you. Those documents must be signed by your supervisor.
