Research Administration Training and Compliance at the Department Level for a Predominantly Undergraduate Institution
Temples, Beryline; Simons, Paula; Atkinson, Timothy N.
Research Management Review, v19 n1 2012
By providing training from the Central Sponsored Programs Office (SPO), departments, and colleges at Predominantly Undergraduate Institutions (PUIs) can increase compliance with grant requirements. PUIs usually do not focus on department- or college-level grants administration and lack monetary resources to support this function. However, at the department level grant administration still needs to run smoothly. To meet these responsibilities at PUIs without an official departmental research administrator (DRA), support staff in the departments and/or colleges are sometimes utilized to fill the gaps. It is very important for central administration, DRAs, and support personnel to work together to share the goal of growing the quality and productivity of grants and research activities. The purpose of this study was to increase understanding of grant administration requirements at the University of Central Arkansas (UCA), and how best to share this information with DRAs and/or support personnel, as well as other PUIs.
