The various compliance and safety units in RII support research excellence at the university through the implementation of policies and procedures that promote the safe, legal, and ethical conduct of research.
The university offers a variety of online tools and resources to assist faculty, students, and staff to identify funding opportunities for scholarly activities at all levels.
Research Development Services (RDS) partners with faculty, their departmental/unit business office, and Sponsored Projects & Contracting Services throughout the proposal life cycle.
Negotiation & Acceptance
This stage of the sponsored project life cycle occurs after submission and runs through final agreement acceptance, ending before the project is initiated.
Managing the administrative aspects of any sponsored research project is critical to meeting the technical contractual obligations required for a successful award.
As with other stages in the sponsored projects life cycle, it's important to ensure that projects are accurately and officially closed.
