The College of Engineering Research Services office provides comprehensive assistance to our faculty with their sponsored research awards. Research Services has two main functions: Pre-Award and Post-Award administration.

Pre-Award administration provides assistance in developing proposal budgets and budget justifications, collecting any necessary documents internal to the College of Engineering, and serving as the facilitator between faculty and the Office of Grants and Contracts (OGCA) during the submission of a proposal.

Post-Award administration supports faculty in administering their awards such as monitoring the award budget for compliant spending, planning future spending, reconciling project expenditures, and providing monthly spending and balance updates.

Research Services also provides full administrative support on all of sponsor project spending, including processing student hires, tuition payments, travel vouchers, supply/equipment purchases, and more.
