Sponsored programs include grants and contracts and other projects sponsored by an outside agency that the University accounts for and budgets separately. It includes training grants, organized research, clinical studies, scholarships and fellowships. These projects are sponsored by federal, state, local and private agencies. SPM allows authorized users to view financial and other type of information for sponsored proposals and awards on-line both on a fiscal year basis and on a project-to-date basis. A typical user of the SPM system would be a Principal Investigator or an employee assigned to the responsibility of monitoring, reconciling and reporting Sponsored proposals, awards, and accounts. For additional information, please contact the Assistant Controller for Systems in the Controller’s Office.
