The Office of Research and Sponsored Programs (ORSP) assists faculty and staff in applying for Extramural funding, primarily, though not exclusively, from government agencies. The Office provides services at all stages of the proposal submission and pre-award process, including budget preparation; project conceptualization and development; assistance with writing, research and editing; connections with other academic institutions, government and community agencies, and businesses and industry; and proposal technical preparation and submission.

ORSP also provides post-award administration for all funded proposals, including award set-up, budget management, expense review and approval, billing and collection, cash management, financial reporting, audits & compliance, and project close-out activities and reporting.
