OSP is keenly aware of the increased
administrative burden being placed on our PI’s. We have established
strong links with your business units as well as OCGA so as a team we
can be responsive to administrative and contractual matters that may
arise. Please reach out to this support team when you have questions
regarding your sponsored award. This includes times when sponsors
contact you directly for non-technical issues. Faculty are our internal
customers, and our goal is to reduce your administrative burden so you
can focus on the technical requirements of your awards.
Whenever possible sponsors should reach out directly to the administrative staff with questions related to contractual or financial issues. If they reach out directly to the PI please forward the email to the appropriate administrative office and we will be happy to follow-up. If possible please include the Kuali or People Soft number or the name of the UMBC sponsor and the title of the project. Of course technical questions are most appropriately sent to the PI.
