Property and Research Accounting

Property Accounting

The Property Accounting Department assists University employees in the proper procedures pertaining to the acquisition, transfer, retirement, and physical inventorying of property and equipment. Our goal is to ensure that all purchases of property and equipment are properly recorded, safeguarded, and available for use by Duquesne University students, faculty, and staff. 


Research Accounting

Research Accounting  provides support to principal investigators and University administrators with the post-award management of grants and contracts. This includes ensuring compliance with federal regulations and requirements set forth by sponsoring agencies.

Our mission is to provide exceptional service to the University community, as well as, external representatives of federal and non-federal sponsoring agencies.  Working in tandem with the Office of Research we provide timely and accurate grant reporting and assistance to University employees.
