This project focused on the immediate personnel needs the Division of Research faces in delivering critical research services to support the current and planned increase in research-active faculty. With $45,000 in funding provided through the budget process and additional funding from the division, two new full-time positions in research administration were created to support the anticipated increase in sponsored-program activity. These placements will assist the division to proactively develop initiatives to streamline grants administration, lessen the administrative burden faculty face in meeting the mandated compliance requirements of sponsored-programs administration and support principal investigator informational needs. The impact of the two positions will be monitored to ensure the project’s desired benefits are achieved.
