ORA-02-01: COST TRANSFER REQUEST FORM
The University of Akron’s policy on cost transfers, ORA-02-01, applies to all federal and non-federal sponsored
projects. All transfers must be submitted within 90 calendar days after the expense(s) is posted to the general
ledger within the financial system, but no later than 60 days after the project terminates. For each transfer
request, a Cost Transfer Request Form must be submitted to and approved by the Office of Research
Administration. Note that once a final Financial Status Report or Final Invoice has been issued to the sponsor,
retroactive cost transfers will not be permitted, unless the transfer(s) is anticipated as a part of the close out
process, or the charge was unallowable.
s initiated after the 90 days require a signature of the Dean, Department Chair or Director and will
be reviewed by ORA Management to determine if the justification provided is appropriate for the late cost
