     The OSP reports to the Office of the Provost and Senior Vice President through Stephen Hahn, Associate Provost for Academic Affairs.

Mission Statement

     The Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP) provides assistance and support to WPUNJ faculty and staff who seek external grant or contract support for research, teaching, service, public programs, creative endeavors, conferences and other types of projects from government agencies, grantmaking public charities, and some private and corporate foundations. The OSP concentrates its activities in three broad areas:

Pre-Award Services

     Activities leading up to the submission of a funding request, including idea development, funder identification, proposal writing, photocopying, mailing, and more. The OSP maintains extensive databases and reference resources on funding programs and agencies, distributes information to the WPUNJ community, provides individualized assistance to applicants to develop high quality proposals, manages the proposal review process, and obtains required signatures among other activities

Post Award Services

     Activities supported after funding has been received, including contract negotiation, preparing and submitting budget or program revisions as well as funding continuation requests, report submission, and problem-solving liaison to agency grants offices and WPUNJ administrative departments. The OSP prepares reports for the University on funding.

Non-Financial Compliance

     The OSP works to insure that State, Federal, and University policies, regulations and procedures related to non-financial aspects of regulations related to support received from grants, cooperative agreements and contracts are appropriately fulfilled. The OSP provides administrative support to the Institutional Review Board for Human Subject Research.
