The Office of Sponsored Programs includes the Offices of Pre-Award Services and Post-Award Accounting. The goal of both offices is to serve the research faculty, clinical faculty, and professional staff at UT Health Science Center with procuring and managing externally funded projects.
Office of Pre-Award Services
The Office of Pre-Award Services serves as the coordinating office for externally funded projects submitted by UT Health Science Center. The goal of the Office of Pre-Award Services is to assist faculty and professional staff in their efforts to secure external funding.
The Pre-Award staff provides technical assistance to principal investigators (PI) during proposal preparation (budget, special instructions, etc.), serves as an information source for and monitors compliance with applicable university and sponsor policies and requirements, and handles all administrative matters with sponsors, including contract negotiations. The staff reviews proposals before submission to the sponsor and advises the PI of any omissions, necessary corrections, or other items that might strengthen the presentation to the funding agency.
Office of Post-Award Services
The Office of Post-Award Services ensures that the expenditure of grant funds is allowable, allocable, reasonable, and consistent. Post-Award Services monitors grant expenditures, processes reimbursement for grant expenditures, and reports on grant expenditures.
