Welcome to SPA 2.0, an innovative partnership program that creates a framework for a consistent and coordinated approach to sponsored project administration at UVM by having college research administration services become a unit of Sponsored Project Administration.

We believe by working together under the SPA 2.0 framework our research administrators at every level will be synchronized in regulations, process and procedures, generating a more efficient and effective path for getting administration done, allowing our researchers to do more research.

Joining SPA 2.0 is voluntary and we look forward to hearing from all colleges or schools interested.

Step 1, is to review our template SPA 2.0 MOU.

Step 2, if interested send your questions to Brian Prindle or Lana Metayer, Director of SPA 2.0.
