Updated Software Accounting Policy

Will you be designing or purchasing software or datasets with research funds? How about using Software or Cloud Hosting Solutions? The Software Accounting Policy (previously called Accounting for Internally-Developed Software) has been updated with an effective date of 1/1/19. The policy defines when costs for purchased and internally-developed software or cloud-hosting arrangements must be capitalized.
