Sponsored projects education program required for HSC community

Health Science Center faculty and staff who have signatory authority over accounts in the "K" or "T-200" series are required to attend the compliance education program titled "Sponsored Projects Administration: What You Need to Know."

The program, presented by the Office of Grants Management, is designed to provide information on federal government and other sponsors, requirements for the management of research project funding and will be a forum for questions about the administration of sponsored programs. The final hour of the presentation will address Institutional Review Board (IRB) issues. Faculty and staff conducting research involving human subjects will need to remain for the IRB portion.

The sessions are scheduled from April 26 through June 2, as indicated below.

Each department or division is responsible for ensuring that its authorized signatories attend a session. In an attempt to make these sessions as convenient as possible, the Office of Grants Management will contact each department individually to schedule programs at the location and time of the department's choosing.
