Introduction to Sponsored Projects

Ever wonder why something can be bought on one sponsored project, but not on another? Ever questioned why something can be bought on departmental funds, but SPA doesn’t allow the purchase on sponsored projects? Ever wondered how proposal budgets are developed and why they are sometimes amended?

Introduction to Sponsored Projects provides insight into all of these questions and more by explaining the underlying theories, federal rules and regulations governing sponsored projects. Instructors also discuss the lifecycle of sponsored projects. SPA is reliant on departmental personnel having this foundational knowledge so they are aware of what they can and cannot do. Moreover, instructors want participants to know the why and identify other possible solutions to meet researchers’ needs. Throughout Introduction to Sponsored Projects, instructors provide real world examples and detail how to help manage sponsored projects with faculty members.

During this multi-day offering, instructors identify these foundational theories and demonstrate how they pertain to the entire award lifecycle – while it starts with the proposal and ends with closeout/audit – these theories remain the same. Attendance and participation is required on all days for credit.
