Customer Finance Administrators without a PPMS account

Customer Finance Administrators are not required to have their own PPMS accounts. Customer Finance Administrators who are listed as the PPMS Group Administrative Contact will receive emails any time a member of the PI’s group will be invoiced for services.

No action is required by the Customer Finance Administrator unless they feel the charges are incorrect or that the incorrect financial account is being charged. If there is an issue, please email the Core Facility directly or contact [email protected].
