Sponsored Projects Administration

The Sponsored Projects Administration (SPA) unit within Research and Graduate Studies (RGS) serves as the central administrative unit at PSU responsible for assisting faculty and staff with activities related to the lifecycle of sponsored project administration. SPA staff provide administrative expertise and professional support to faculty and staff from proposal development and submission, through award negotiation and acceptance on behalf of the University, to award management and closeout.

Sponsored Projects Lifecycle

This site offers information and tools to assist faculty and staff with the administration of sponsored projects throughout the entire lifecycle of a project. That lifecycle encompasses all aspects of sponsored project administration, from identifying funding opportunities and submitting a proposal for external funding to the administration of an award and the subsequent closeout of a project at the end of the funding period.
