Re:        Research Spending Approvals

Further to the May 19 budget memo from the Executive Budget Team, spending approvals for externally funded research accounts, including Senate Research Committee and Regional Research Fund accounts, do not require approval by the Vice-President, Research and Innovation. Normal approval processes for eligible research related expenses shall continue as previously required.

Please note, however, that due to COVID-19, travel restrictions across both campuses remain in place. 

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at
