Office of Sponsored Programs Administration

The Office of Sponsored Programs Administration (OSPA) provides comprehensive support services to faculty and professional staff for the successful administration of externally sponsored projects.

Researchers work with OSPA from pre-award through the project close-out stages of research administration. In addition to managing the university's procedures for sponsored programs, OSPA provides guidance and training on topics such as how to find funding, proposal writing, project budget development, managing collaborations, managing cost issues, and effective grant reporting. OSPA also helps researchers maintain compliance with sponsor guidelines.
