Sponsored Programs Administration (SPA) is divided into teams. Each team has an e-mail distribution address, provided below. For routine matters, please use the team e-mail. For those times when you need to speak to someone on the phone immediately, contact the head of the team for help and guidance.

SPA Business Practices for Proposal Receipt and Approval (download PDF)

Negotiation of award terms and conditions All award documents that must be negotiated, signed by Office of Research and Development and returned to the Sponsor will be handled by the Manager of the team or assigned to an administrator on the team with the appropriate level of training and expertise. The individual who is assigned to handle the award document will notify the Principal Investigator and the unit administrator as to the assignment and/or status of negotiating and signature.

Award set-up:  All staff will work on awards from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM every day. We have reserved this time to focus solely on award processing. Therefore, during this time each day, please contact SPA team members using the team e-mail address or call the main Office of Research and Development line, 6-6723.

When contacting SPA about issues related to a specific proposal, award or agreement, please provide the team with the following information: Principal Investigator's name, unit (school, department, division, institute, center or program), Sponsor, and other information that will help us to identify the correct proposal or award (such as the project title or the Sponsor award number).
