The Office of Sponsored Programs strives to provide our faculty with responsive, high-quality service. Our office offers assistance to faculty and staff in two areas, Sponsored Projects and Post Award Management. The Lifecycle of a Grant pathway is available to help successfully guide University community through the funding process.

Sponsored Projects

The Sponsored Projects (OSP) team supports faculty and staff in obtaining and managing sponsored awards, as well as review and approval of proposals sent to all external sponsors. In order to maintain a superior level of service and allow time to address any potential issues, all submissions will be subject to internal deadline requirements.

Submission of Proposals – Internal Deadline

Adherence to the policy listed on the Lifecycle of a Grant pathway will ensure OSP and your individual specialist can assist you in submitting timely and high-quality applications.

Post Award Management

The Post Award Management (OPM) team supports faculty and staff in managing sponsored awards and assuring proper stewardship of funding.

While providing central oversight for the post-award fiscal activities of all sponsored projects, OPM establishes sponsored projects cost center and budgets, reviews and validates transactions to support research, and acts as a liaison between Research and Billing/Accounts Receivable office.

OPM ensures compliance with applicable federal and state rules and regulations governing sponsored projects administration by creating and promulgating policies and procedures, developing training materials, conducting training programs. Partnering with PI, SPO, and the divisional administration, OPM ensures compliance with award terms and conditions, DOE, University, laboratory, and sponsor policies.
