Areas of Responsibility for Grant and Contract Administrator

ORSP has two divisions, one for corporate-funded projects and one for Federal and other non-corporate projects. Each college/department/unit has been assigned an ORSP Grants Administrator within the division to assist with grant and contract administration issues. All of the ORSP Grants Administrators are knowledgeable and can help with both pre-award and post-award questions.
