Human Resources and Payroll
The Research Foundation Human Resources and Payroll Office is responsible for processing appointments, providing new employee orientation, maintaining personnel files, overseeing leave records and providing advice to Research Foundation employees and project personnel on an array of Research Foundation personnel, payroll and benefit issues.
Normally the largest expenditure area in a sponsored award is personnel costs. Staff members in Sponsored Funds and Sponsored Programs work together to be sure that proposals properly classify personnel and budget sufficient salary.
The associate vice president for sponsored funds administration is responsible for policy matters associated with RF employment and ensuring that all appointments are consistent with Research Foundation, SUNY and University guidelines.
