Office of Research and Sponsored Programs
The Office of Research and Sponsored Programs (ORSP), a department within Research Administration and Finance, administers sponsored activities funded by federal, state, and private agencies - from proposal development through award close-out.
Among our goals is a commitment to minimizing the administrative burden on investigators while ensuring full compliance with the laws and regulations that govern their sponsored programs.
ORSP's Project Officers assist established investigators, junior faculty, and postdoctoral fellows in identifying funding opportunities and obtaining support for their research, training, and public service projects. ORSP provides guidance regarding application instructions, proposal and budget development, and agency regulations. It also serves as the institutional liaison with intramural offices and extramural sponsors.
ORSP staff works closely with administrators and investigators to ensure that proposals comply with the sponsor's and UCHC's policies and procedures -- prior to providing institutional approval which is necessary for the submission of applications.
ORSP also serves as the institutional office responsible for managing the non-financial aspects of all grant and contract awards; ORSP project officers assist department administrators and investigators with the administration of their sponsored activity portfolios.
Members of the ORSP team provide the UCHC community with support, education, and training related to grant-writing and electronic research administration (eRA).
