The Office of Research and Sponsored Programs (RSP) oversees extramurally sponsored programs in two forms. Federal Grant and Contract Funding & Non-Federal Grant and Contract Funding. There are many stages in the lifecycle of an award, each as important as the others. Within the WSB, the Senior Associate Dean for Faculty and Research, Jim Johannes, oversees Grant Management throughout the award lifecycle. For assistance with the pre-award portions of the award lifecycle (finding funding and proposal preparation), please contact Belle Heberling, Director of PhD & Research Programs or Patrick Stevens, PhD Admissions and Operations Manager. For assistance with the post-award portions of the award cycle (award management and award closeout), please contract Jonathan Wolf, Budget and Financial Analyst in the Financial Management Office. The award set-up portion of the lifecycle contains both pre and post-award responsibilities and therefore, responsibility for it is shared between both offices.
Grant funding provides excellent opportunities to conduct research that may not otherwise be completed due to funding limitations. As extramurally sponsored grant funding, there are a number of sponsor and UW compliance and policy items that need to be adhered to. As such, it is important throughout the award lifecycle to allow for sufficient time and effort to find funding, prepare your proposal, set-up awards, manage awards, and closeout awards. It is important to be responsible and respectful of the funding being provided from extramural sponsors. Doing so may also help encourage future funding opportunities from other sponsors.
