The Office of Sponsored Research (OSR) is the office of record for all grants and contracts between external sponsors of academic projects and University faculty and staff. Proposals submitted to these agencies must be reviewed by OSR to assure compliance with University policy and, in some cases, policies of the federal government. OSR also reviews budgets to verify that all appropriate charges are included in the cost calculations.

The role of the office includes, but is not limited to:
  • Identification of funding sources
  • Development of proposals
  • Internal review and approval
  • Physical submission of proposals
  • Information follow-up
  • Award negotiation
  • Receipt and execution of award
  • Post-award administration
  • Timely and complete closeout
  • Development and implementation of policies and procedures related to sponsored programs
  • Compliance requirements associated with sponsored programs
