The Office of Sponsored Projects (OSP), under the direction of the Office of Research Administration (ORA), provides assistance to faculty and staff in obtaining and managing sponsored awards that support scholarly activities. OSP is charged with reviewing and approving proposals submitted to all sponsors, for interpreting, negotiating, and accepting grants and contracts for sponsored projects funded by federal and state agencies, foundations and other public and private sources, and providing guidance to assure proper stewardship of funds that are received. In addition, OSP prepares and negotiates subawards for collaborative research and works closely with faculty and business office staff to ensure financial compliance and proper accounting of externally sponsored funds. OSP’s financial management responsibilities include cash management, financial reporting, award closeout, and effort reporting.
