Sponsored Programs and Research Integrity


The Office of Sponsored Programs & Research Integrity assists UCM faculty and staff throughout the external fund-seeking cycle. 

Sponsored Programs

Pre-award – When faculty/staff express an interest in seeking external funding for a specific project, we support them as they:

  • Search for external funding sources such as grants and contracts
  • Develop proposals
  • Prepare budgets of anticipated expenses to submit with the application for funding

Post-award – When UCM is awarded external funding, our staff coordinates much of the behind-the-scenes activity. We lead the way in:

  • Obtaining, interpreting, and helping faculty/staff follow grant/contract management guidelines, policies, and regulations
  • Handling post-award negotiations with granting/contracting agencies
  • Coordinating legal counsel review of agreements and contracts
  • Working with UCM accounting and procurement units to appropriately receive, spend and track the funds
  • Monitoring and reviewing reports to assure they meet audit guidelines and sponsoring agency’s deadlines

Research Integrity

Compliance - Faculty/staff who conduct research work closely with our staff to assure their project adheres to all relevant regulations and guidelines.
