Office of Sponsored Programs

The Office of Sponsored Programs, located on the third floor of the Administration Building, manages grant and contract financial information after the grant has been awarded. This office works with faculty and staff to ensure the accurate use of funds and appropriate documentation of that use. The office staff:

  • review requisitions, receipts, purchase orders, travel payment requests, and personnel forms
  • check the grant/contract budget before approving expenditures to ensure that expenses are allowable, allocable, and reasonable
  • review and process time sheets and payroll matters
  • establish internal controls
  • monitor cost sharing
  • review budget narrative, Research Foundation abstract, notice of grant award, award letter, and terms and conditions of the grant or contract award
  • stay on top of financial compliance issues

The Office of Sponsored Programs also assists faculty and staff in the submission of grant applications, including:

  • finding funding sources
  • interpreting grant guidelines
  • ensuring proposals meet application requirements
  • constructing budgets
  • electronic submission of proposal applications
  • review of interim and final reports to grant sponsors
