Why we do this

Why do we do this? Primarily to assist faculty in navigating the waters of compliance with the multitude of federal, state, sponsor and university regulations.  We are here to assist the campus research community in its efforts to secure extramural funding while promoting proper stewardship of those funds.

Our goal is to help you succeed with research and not get mired in the details of compliance. We will help you figure out what are allowable costs and ensure that best practices for research are adhered to. ORSP supports campus researchers and their staff with a variety of extramural funding transactions. This office is responsible for the effective and timely handling of all research proposals, as well as preparing, interpreting, negotiating, and accepting awards/agreements on behalf of the University for projects funded by federal and state agencies, foundations, and other public and private sources.  The office is also responsible for drafting, negotiating, and executing awards and subawards for collaborative research.
