OVPR F&A Use and Accountability

The funds provided by sponsors to cover F&A costs are shared within the University, with 25% going to central administration to cover operating budget expenditures, 35% going to the colleges and schools to be used at the discretion of Deans, Chairs and Principal Investigators in advancing research activities, and 40% going to the Office of Vice Provost for Research (OVPR) to cover costs of the research administration infrastructure and to pursue and contribute to strategic research opportunities. Some examples of the use of OVPR F&A recoveries include contributions toward shared research equipment, intellectual property evaluations related to faculty inventions, and data security to enable faculty to conduct research subject to heightened security requirements.
