UFV transitioned to new Tri-Agency Guide on Financial Administration (TAGFA) effective April 1, 2020
What you need to know
UFV manages all research funds in accordance with regulations set by the federal Tri-Agencies: NSERC, SSHRC, and CIHR.
The Tri-Agencies released an updated version of their Tri-Agency Guide on Financial Administration (TAGFA), which became effective April 1, 2020.
This policy renewal represents some significant changes to the ways in which UFV manages research funds and how eligibility of expenses will be determined. On the whole, these changes should reduce some of the burdens associated with managing research funds and should provide greater flexibility for Primary Investigators to determine how their research funds should be used. However, they also clarify responsibilities for researchers, institutions, and the Agencies, and make it more important that you, as an investigator, understand the principles and guidelines for managing your research funds.
During this transition period, the UFV Research Office will be updating policies and procedures related to the changes to ensure institutional compliance with the new guide.
