Launch of the Renewal of the Tri-Agency Financial Administration

The Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC), the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) are pleased to launch the Renewal of the Tri-Agency Financial Administration. A large part of the Renewal will involve streamlining and simplifying the administration and use of grant funds by creating a principles-based Tri-Agency Financial Administration Guide (TAFAG) in consultation with the community. The vision for this updated Guide is to promote efficiencies, reduce administrative burden, and provide greater flexibility to administering institutions and grant recipients in ensuring the appropriate accountability and use of grant funds. The Agencies expect to have the new principles-based Guide in place by late Spring 2018.
