Administrative faculty and staff offer support for grant applications and grant management,  personnel management and other functions. In the process of grant application and management, the Administrative Core assists with proposal development, including budget preparation, compiling agency forms, and routing proposals through affiliated departments and the Office of Sponsored Research. Our post-award activities include establishing and monitoring accounts on all research activities (providing quarterly reports to Principal Investigators) from initiation to completion of the project.

We offer effective personnel management by hiring and maintaining salary sources on all personnel supported on Center research projects, tracking leave records and processing personnel actions per University policies.
