Unless specified otherwise in the research award contract, recipient institutions must submit invoices no less than every 90 days detailing charges to each approved budget category. Invoices must be supported by a labor detail report reflecting the salary for all personnel charged to the project.
For fixed-price awards, submit invoices based on the milestone and payment schedule found in the contract, typically when a report is due.
Once an invoice is deemed acceptable and is approved (and deliverables have been met), payment is issued within 30 days of receipt. A payment may be withheld if the recipient institution either fails to provide the detail and documents the contract requests, or fails to justify an expense questioned by the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI).
Invoices must be submitted through PCORI Online, which can be accessed through https://pcori.force.com/engagement.
