Sponsored Programs Administration

About Us
Sponsored Programs Administration (SPA) supports the research enterprise throughout the entire lifecycle of an externally sponsored project, from proposal submission to award close-out. A direct result of University System realignment, the Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP) and Grants and Contracts Office (GCO) became “Sponsored Programs Administration,” re-uniting pre- and post-award functions under a single organizational structure. Although our name has changed, our mission to serve the Illinois research community remains the same. The integration allows us to maximize the efficiency and efficacy of our service to researchers and the research administration community. We continue to provide proposal submission, award negotiation, and award management services, among other functions.

Who reviews my proposal? Who negotiates my award? Who administers my project?
