The Post-Award Division of the Office of Research Administration has responsibility for administering all externally and internally funded projects.
The division is divided into:
The Grant Management team is responsible for oversight of externally and internally funded projects from the receipt of award to project closeout. The team assists in the establishment of internal policy and procedures, oversees compliance with funder regulations, provides fiscal reporting both internally and externally, collects and reports space survey data, and serves as an educational resource to the research community.
The Human Resources team manages the full range of employment programs available at the Research Foundation, including recruitment, benefits, compensation, employee relations and staff development. They provide strategic support and effective guidance for both current and prospective employees as well as retirees.
The Payroll team performs tasks to establish and maintain employee/payroll records. They are responsible for processing all employee wages and stipends, withholding all appropriate taxes on wages, deducting benefits and other authorized items from employee wages.
The Purchasing Department is a service unit established to support the mission of the Research Foundation. It is staffed by procurement professionals who have the requisite knowledge, skills and training to assist research personnel in the purchase of required goods and services. This expertise insures that procurement decisions will be made in the best interest of the Research Foundation and in compliance with state and federal statutes as well as Research Foundation policies.
