Office of Sponsored Research - Sponsored Programs

The Office of Sponsored Research – Sponsored Programs (OSR-SP) is under the direction of the Executive Director of Research Grants Initiatives. The Executive Director reports to the Vice President for Academic Affairs and is responsible for pre-award, grants management and compliance requirements of externally funded projects. OSR-SP pre-award responsibilities include assistance with proposal development, budget preparation, review, submission, contract review, and authorization of restricted accounts. Once an award is accepted by the University, OSR-SP assists project directors/principal investigators with project management by monitoring financial activity according to sponsor terms and conditions. Guidance is provided on a wide variety of financial transactions and accounting services. OSR-SP also provides administrative and regulatory support for the federally mandated committees that review research involving human subjects and animal care and use. The Office assists the Vice President of Academic Affairs with the coordination of any investigation involving non-compliance or allegations of misconduct. More information regarding frequently asked questions, forms, and guidelines can be found on:  liushare.liu.edu under “Academic Affairs.”
