Post-Award Administration

Our mission is to support CSUSM faculty and staff with the management of successfully awarded proposals by providing expertise, assistance, education, and oversight of extramural sponsored projects and research. We review, negotiate, and accept contracts and grants on behalf of CSUSM from federal and state agencies, foundations, and other public and private sources. We also draft, negotiate, and execute awards and subawards for collaborative research, and prepare and maintain policies and procedures intended to ensure that CSUSM can adequately support proposed projects and fulfill the requirements of awarded grants and contracts. 

Additionally, our team provides guidance to assure proper stewardship of funds that are received. We work closely with faculty and administrators to ensure financial compliance and proper accounting of externally sponsored funds. OSP’s financial management responsibilities include cash management, financial reporting, award closeout, and effort reporting. We also assist Principal Investigators/Project Directors to prepare, review, and submit non-financial post-award changes (e.g., No-cost extensions, Rebudgeting, Change of PI, Award transfer, etc.).
