The Division of Sponsored Program Administration serves as the principal interface between Augusta University and external agencies providing sponsored program support, including the Augusta University Research Institute (AURI). It is responsible for the complete range of sponsored program management, including pre-award responsibilities for coordination of routing, review, and institutional approval of proposals and applications; award receipt and account establishment; re-budgeting and institutional prior approval; and account closeout activities.

The office also is responsible for the development and negotiation of the institution's federal Facilities and Administrative Cost Rate Agreement, for oversight of effort reporting, and for coordination of the routing of institutional agreements not involving funding for approval and presidential signature. It maintains files and records and produces periodic and ad hoc reports concerning funding and regulatory matters, and supports the Office of the Associate Vice President for Research Administration and the Augusta University Research Institute in regard to development of policies for the conduct of research, intramural research programs including the Intramural Grant Programs, the AURI Research Incentive Program, and the Bridge Funding Program.

Comments and suggestions  are always welcome.  Please let us know how we can provide you with better service!
