As the recipient of research grants and support, faculty are responsible for meeting the requirements of funding agencies regarding carrying out a research plan and submission of reports.

The services provided by the Research Center and its staff assist and complement the work faculty do to meet post-award requirements. Center staff can assist faculty with their post-award needs through work on the following activities:

  • Assist in collaboration with the Dean’s Office (budget staff) to troubleshoot problems with grant budgets-reconcile discrepancies, help with interpreting and implementing grants budgets;
  • Provide support to meet deadline submissions for grant renewals, interim and final reports, or other deliverables proposed in funded proposals;
  • Review interim and final reports or other deliverables for clarity, completeness, and ensuring the deliverables are consistent with what was proposed, and;
  • Assist faculty to document and submit effort reports to the Office of Sponsored Programs.
