Welcome to the Office of Sponsored Programs! The staff of this department is here to assist all faculty and staff that have been awarded research grants and sponsored program contracts via the Research Foundation (RF). We will assist you with all RF personnel appointments, benefit information, purchase and travel requisitions, accounts payable matters, budget revisions and final reporting requirements. To ensure that sponsored programs run smoothly, please take note of the following:
- All personnel appointment forms should be completed and submitted to Human Resources before the employee begins working. Project Directors should make sure that funds are received and the grant is up on the system before appointing employee.
- All correspondence relating to grant activity should be on Research Foundation letterhead. Letterhead can be requested from Administrative Services HAB 40 or ordered directly from the campus Print Shop.
- All expenditures and encumbrances reported on the Monthly Account Summary (MAS) should be reviewed for accuracy and any errors should be reported immediately to Sponsored Programs.
- All requests for performance reports which require financial data should be forwarded to Sponsored Programs for completion.
