OSPA Teleconference: “It Takes a Village to Manage Awards” - April 12

The Office of Sponsored Projects Administration is sponsoring a teleconference presented by the National Council of University Research Administrators titled “It Takes a Village to Manage Awards: Post-Award Issues for Pre-Award Research Administrators & Departmental Administrators.” The presentation will be shown on Thursday, April 12, in Room 102 Mining and Minerals Building from 8:30 am to noon. Please email Sean Scott at if you would like to register. You must register if you want to receive the presentation materials.

Presentation description: As research administrators, we are challenged with multiple compliance issues in supporting our researchers. Whether it’s assisting with proposal preparation, facilitating the submission process, award negotiation and acceptance, or managing the award through closeout, there are many aspects of research administration compliance that impact what we do as administrators. Communication is essential between departmental, pre-award and post-award offices to ensure that award compliance is managed effectively and efficiently. This program will examine such areas as best practices for good communication between departmental, pre-award and post-award offices at proposal stages, facilitating budget development and budget justifications which can be defensible in post-award audits, minimizing cost transfers, and managing cost sharing on sponsored projects.

Learning Objectives: Participants will develop a better understanding of, and a resource toolkit for addressing, the following aspects of contract negotiation:

  • Explore key compliance issues impacting departmental, pre-award and post-award functions
  • Identify best practices to facilitate efficient and effective award management
