Office of the Vice Provost for Research

Managing the regulatory and fiduciary responsibilities that accompany sponsored research funds is a complex undertaking as this funding is highly regulated.  Sound financial management of sponsored funds is critical in maintaining the public’s trust in both investigators’ and the institution’s ability to discharge their fiduciary responsibilities in managing the expenditure of hundreds of millions of dollars a year in support of research, and in ensuring the public and research participants that the research is conducted in accordance with the highest scientific and ethical standards.
