Managing Grant Finances
Workday is FAU's cloud-based application software that enables human resources, payroll and financial functions. Workday is able to be accessed 24/7 from any computer or mobile device with Internet capability. Faculty will be able to update their address, request vacation time, change a beneficiary, and view compensation and benefit information from within Workday. Workday trainings are offered by the University.
Additionally, Workday is utilized to manage research awards, including making research-related purchases (pCard, Creating Requisitions, Creating Requisitions Punchouts) and managing award expenses (Expense Reports and Spend Authorizations).
Prior to hiring staff, contact your COM Human Resource Department Partner for assistance and guidance or email email@example.com.
Making research related purchases can occur through multiple methods. Please consult with your Department Administrator prior to making your initial purchase. Common research related purchasing options include: pCard (Purchasing Card), Create Requisitions, and Create Requisition Punchout.
To review typical expenses that are generally allowed/not-allowed on a research award, please access the "Grant Spending" document for further guidance. However, always refer to the research award's terms and conditions for full guidance.
