About Us

The College of Engineering Office of Research Administration (ORA) is committed to providing the highest quality support for faculty research endeavors. Sponsored Programs Coordinators (SPC) provide budget development and comprehensive support for all administrative requirements related to proposal submission to both federal and nonfederal sponsors. SPCs also provide award management via financial analysis, reporting and spending projections for faculty PIs. In addition, ORA fosters a climate of research compliance through monthly audits of all transactions on both research and discretionary accounts as well as management of over 600 effort certification reports each year. Contact the Sponsored Programs Coordinator assigned to your research for any questions you may have.
