Primary Financial Contact Setup

On iLab PIs are setup by default as Primary Financial Contacts (PFC). However, they can dedicate business manager or financial administrator to be their Primary Financial Contact for the lab/group. The Primary Financial Contact is the individual who gets notified about new invoices, pending invoices, and any other financial inquiries the core or RRC administration has. In order for PI to setup a PFC, the individual needs to:

  1. Be registered with iLab system
  2. Added to that PIs lab/group
  3. Assigned Financial Manager role


This does not in any way diminish the PI authority in the lab/group. The PI can override any and all authorizations in the lab/group.

  6. Click “Save”
  7. Refresh the page
  8. Navigate to “Group Settings” tab
