Below is a table entitled “Eligible and Non-eligible Expenses for Stationery and Office Supplies”. This table was put together by the Tri-Agencies (SSHRC, CIHR & NSERC) in collaboration with l’Université de Sherbrooke and the University of Ottawa. It was designed to provide clarification on the directives in the “Use of Grant Funds” section of the Tri-Agency Financial Administration Guide, under the sub-section “Equipment and Supplies”, but not to replace this sub-section. You will find a description of the general rule and examples of what the Agencies consider eligible and non-eligible expenses for stationery and office supplies.
The table will be posted as a link in the sub-section “Equipment and Supplies” in the 2009 version of the Tri-Agency Financial Administration Guide scheduled to be posted on the agencies’ web sites in early autumn 2009.
