For account establishment for funds from CUNY Misc/Various Private Sponsors’ Project, please include a completed Funds Identification Form. This procedure is necessary to identify the source of funding and to distinguish such programs from external sponsored awards administered by the RF. The identification of the source of funding is critical for the RF to fulfill its stewardship role in post award administration and related sponsor compliance and reporting functions.
