Sponsored Projects serves five main functions:
- Proposal review and submission
- Award negotiation and setup
- Post-award accounting, monitoring and invoicing
- Compliance, advisory and regulatory services
- Education, training and outreach
Sponsored Projects aims to minimize the research administrative burden on faculty and assists the University in assuring that maximum public benefit is derived from sponsored projects funding.
We collaborate with principal investigators and research administrators across campus as well as sponsors at the local, state and federal level including non-profit organizations and industry.
Quick reference guide for proposal prep
Our quick reference guide is a helpful resource for proposal preparation. You’ll find a summary of the application process and information required on most proposals, such as institution numbers and data, F&A and fringe benefit rates, and stipends and salaries for assistantships and post docs.
The quick reference for proposals includes some basic regulatory compliance numbers that are referenced when working with human participants, animals and on USDA related projects.
You’ll also find information on liability insurance, industry clusters and definitions for sponsored project program types – the different categories of research, instruction and other types of sponsored activity.
