Sponsored Project Training Program

Kick-Off Program

October 13, 20 and 27, 2010 at the Sheraton Conference Center

This first of our series of training programs was created and offered by OSP Pre-Award staff, Grant and Contract Administrative Services staff, and experienced administrators from academic units.

Training Goal

After completing the program, administrators should:

  • Understand the role of the department research administrator and how it relates to others involved in the grant life-cycle.
  • Be able to apply the OMB Circular regulations that govern the administration of federal awards to day-to-day transactions.
  • Understand critical areas such as cost-sharing, cost transfers and guaranteed funding.
  • Effectively use the financial management tools and reports available to monitor transactions and expenditures.
  • More effectively administer sponsored awards from inception to closeout.
