The project administration team is committed to providing timely, accurate, and courteous assistance to our faculty, external sponsors, and other System members. The project administration team assists customers in exercising good project management practices in the administration of externally-funded sponsored programs during the lifecycle of an award—from project establishment to closeout. These practices ensure compliance with System members’ policies, state and federal regulations, and grant-specific terms and conditions. The project administration team provides assistance making necessary changes to various financial aspects of the project while working with the principal investigators and other members of the System’s research community in accomplishing the statement of work, on time and within budget and compliance.
