My Research On Line (MROL) is a web-based service available to all principal investigators and co-investigators with research awards administered by the University of Toronto. It is an important tool to assist you to comply with the monthly review and online sign-off requirement for each of your funds. Administrative support staff may also use this service to view PI accounts. Researchers can view the status of their research applications, ethical reviews, or research Funds administered by the University. Principal investigators may view their Funded Research Digests (FReDs), the balance of their research funds, and the details of expenses that have been charged to their funds. Accounting information related to FIS research accounts is refreshed daily.
How to get a MROL Account
Most researchers have been set up for this service. If you have a grant at the U of T and have not yet been set up - please consult with your Business Officer who will contact UTSC Financial Services.
Business Officers/Financial Administrators can get MROL access as well by contacting UTSC Financial Services.
The personal user name (userid) that you need for MROL access is created on the Human Resources Information System (HRIS) when you are set up on the payroll. You must first activate your userid at the link on the Campus Business Connect page on the University of Toronto (St. George) website at: http://www.ams.utoronto.ca/Services/Campus_Business_Connect.htm
The password that you create for accessing your pay and the userid created by HRIS are the same for MROL access. For your convenience the Campus Business Connect page also provides a link to reset your password.
Researchers have financial responsibility for projects under their signing authority and must review expenses on a monthly basis. MROL provides an on-line button enabling you to mark your account(s) as “reviewed by PI”.
At your convenience, you can find the answers to other questions such as the following.
|How much is my total award?||
