Managing Awards

Services Provided by the OSP 

      Once a proposal is funded, the OSP provides additional services. The successful fulfillment of a grant contract is a cooperative, University-wide effort led by the Project Director or Principal Investigator and supported by many people and offices.

     Four key areas of cooperative effort concern are (1) the processing of the contract that formalizes the relationship between the University and the funding agency, (2) the management of the relationship with the funder to insure regulatory compliance, (3) the reporting on grant funding activity, and (4) the development and monitoring of subcontracts. The OSP is central to all these activities.
