Sponsored Programs Administration

Sponsored Programs Administration (SPA) within the Office of Research and Development provides administrative support to faculty and departmental administrators for all sponsored project activities. University faculty were awarded more than $479.8 million in research, service, and training awards in FY13. SPA will work with you to submit competitive proposals, negotiate agreements, and navigate the world of sponsored programs administration.
