Office of Finance and Research Administration

In the Fall of 2013, the Office of Finance and Research Administration was formed to facilitate an increase in research productivity by assisting faculty in identifying securing and administering externally-funded sponsored programs in the college. This administrative unit serves as an important resource to faculty and provides one-stop-shop assistance in important grant-related areas to ensure the college continues to achieve distinction in research, teaching, and service.

OFRA facilitates all administrative aspects of the pre- and post-award process, including proposal preparation, budgetary needs, human resources, sub-awards, contracts, procurement requisitions, projecting expenditures, and performing accounting and reporting functions, such as:

  • Identifying available funding and offering technical assistance to faculty on proposal preparation and submission through the sponsoring agency.

  • Providing comprehensive support to principal investigators (PI's) in all areas of grant administration, including procurement services; appointment of sponsored project staff, coordination of meetings and  travel; maintenance of project accounts and reports for project decision-making; and liaison between the PI's, the University Office of Sponsored Programs, and the sponsoring agency.

  • Provide expertise in hosting and planning various seminars, workshops, forums and conferences.
