We provide financial and administrative assistance to faculty and staff from proposal preparation through project close-out. Specifically, we:

  • offer financial and administrative guidance during proposal preparation;
  • review proposals prior to submission; and
  • provide the administrative and financial management necessary to comply with federal, state, sponsor and university regulations.
