The OSP is the central point of coordination for sponsored projects and the University's representative for grants, contracts and other agreements from government agencies, foundations, and private industry. The staff of OSP is committed to helping faculty seek and obtain external funding, submit proposals, administer awards, and comply with all applicable University and sponsor policies. OSP oversees the implementation of and compliance with sponsored project policies as required by federal mandate as a requisite for conducting sponsored projects.
