Post-Award Support 


Once a proposal has been approved, the Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP) will assist you in the administration of the resulting Fund(s). Some of the specific services offered by OSP are:

  • Fund Creation in Banner
  • Drafting Subawards and other Contracts
  • Documenting Cost Share/Match
  • Review of specific purchases for allowability upon request
  • Quarterly and special Invoicing 
  • Project close-out

Our over-all goal is to enable researchers to focus on research by providing them the administrative management support needed to obtain and manage externally funded programs in a friendly and efficient manner.

Some grants are for large amounts of money and involve multiple funds to allow for the tracking of the completion of proposal goals and outcomes. Some grants require a large portion of the researcher's time to manage administratively or that of someone else.  Many researchers may choose to have departmental assistance with these requirements. However, given the complexity of rules associated with reporting and accountability for the different agencies, the requirements of the grant make exceed the time and experience that is available at the Department level.
If you have any questions about the services or support provided by OSP please feel free to contact any of the staff listed above.
