Departmental Assignments

Your Departmental Research Administrator (DRA) is your first point of contact when preparing proposals for external funding or managing an award. Refer to the lead time required for institutional review and approval of the Cayuse proposal record.  

After working with your DRA and prior to submitting E-Prop for routing, contact the appropriate departmental OSP pre-award sponsored programs specialist (SPS) listed below, recognizing that the others in OSP may be involved in your submission due to workload.  OSP Pre / Post SPS contact information and photos, and responsibility:

  • Pre-Award = proposal preparation and submission, through award receipt and negotiation
  • Post-Award = begins when the Budget Status Report (BuStR) is sent to the PI and DRA
