Research Incentive Accounts (RIAs) have been established to hold funds for faculty and staff. Sponsored Projects Administration (SPA) is responsible for the curation of these accounts and routinely fields questions about allowable purchases and deposits.
A number of programs on campus utilize the RIA as a vehicle for delivering incentives to employees, including Inclusive Excellence, Immersive Learning, Faculty Learning Communities, and Sponsored Projects.
In fall 2022, two updates were made to the RIA program to assist with streamlining processes.
More information can be found about Research Incentive Accounts on our website: https://www.bsu.edu/about/administrativeoffices/sponsored-projects-administration/outreach-and-education/ria
There will be two informational sessions at the end of the Fall Semester, one for administrators and one for faculty. Watch the communication center for those RSVP links!
