Research Administration

Department Research Administrators (DRAs) provide budget development and comprehensive support for all administrative requirements related to proposal submission to both federal and non-federal sponsors. DRAs also provide award management via financial analysis, reporting and spending projections for faculty and principal investigators (PIs).

Our office fosters a climate of research compliance through monthly audits of all transactions on both research and discretionary accounts as well as management of labor verification reports per the policies of the Office of Sponsored Projects (OSP). Contact your DRA with any questions.
