The Office of Research Administration is committed to serve as the central resource for faculty and staff by providing the financial and regulatory stewardship required in today's research environment.
Our mission is to provide administrative support to the Principal Investigators (PI's) in their pursuit of sponsored research, while ensuring compliance with University, federal, state, city and private sponsor regulations, terms and conditions.
The Pre-Award Division provides a wide range of services, including:
The Pre-Award team works closely with investigators, department administrators and research staff to assist with budget preparation.
