We recommended utilizing the PI Banner Guide to review your grant account information on a frequent basis. PI's have found these banner steps cover most, if not all, of their account tracking needs.
For any PI that needs more specialized account information, please contact Ann Cox in the Controllers Office for assistance: firstname.lastname@example.org or (318) 342-1959
