While the focus of the Office for Research Support is to provide pre-award services, our staff has a broad knowledge base of sponsor policies that impact the successful management of an award and is available for consultation to faculty and departement administrators.

On this page you will find resources and information that may be useful to post-award administrators.  Please do not hesitate to contact our office if you have questions or suggestions.
