Corporate and Foundation Relations
The Office of Sponsored Programs and Corporate and Foundation Relations (CFR) complement one another. CFR serves as the liaison between faculty and certain external sponsors in order to establish a relationship, build rapport, and fund research. OSP remains responsible for negotiating and setting up resulting grants in Banner, though CFR may coordinate the submission of required financial and technical reports.
Please be aware that even if CFR helps you to locate funding, your agreement still must be signed by an Authorized Official of the university, which is vested in appropriate OSP staff. Visit the Corporate and Foundation Relations site for more information on CFR functions.
Technology Transfer Office
The Technology Transfer Office handles matters such as export control, intellectual property protection and commercialization, as well as deemed exports.
Accounts Payable is located in the same building as the Office of Sponsored Programs, convenient for processing urgent grant-related vendor payments and travel reimbursement requests.
Risk Management is handled through the Office of Administration.
