Technology Access Centre grants
You must report regularly on how you use the funds from your grant, the research activities and other activities you carry out during your grant period and the outcomes of your research activities. You will be informed of reporting requirements upon receiving your award letter. You must provide a final report within three months of the end of your grant.
Notifying NSERC about changes
To receive subsequent instalments of your grant, you must (1) demonstrate your need for funds and (2) adhere to all conditions specified in the terms and conditions of an award.
You are not required to strictly adhere to the budget presented in the proposal, as long as the grant funds are used for the research, training and other eligible activities for which they were intended. However, you must ensure that the budget line items (e.g., equipment, salaries, etc.) comply with the Tri-agency guide on financial administration, Part 2: Use of grant funds (with exceptions noted under Funding).
Extension of grants
If you cannot complete your planned and other activities within the specified term of your grant, you must notify NSERC. You may then be allowed an additional one-year period to complete your activities using existing funds.
