Upon account closeout, University of Miami researchers are responsible for submitting the scientific and invention reports which most sponsors require. Your departmental administrator and the post-award office will prepare the financial report, usually due 90 days after the project's end. Failure to submit these reports promptly may jeopardize your future funding, and the University's. Researchers at the University of Miami may refer to the following policies for information about closing out accounts:
