The Sponsored Programs Office assists the campus research community in its efforts to secure extramural funding while promoting proper stewardship of those funds.

What We Do

The Office of Research Sponsored Programs office at UC Davis supports campus researchers and their staff with a variety of extramural funding transactions. This office is responsible for the effective and timely handling of all research proposals, as well as preparing, interpreting, negotiating, and accepting awards/agreements on behalf of the Regents for projects funded by federal and state agencies, foundations, and other public and private sources.  The office is also responsible for drafting, negotiating, and executing awards and subawards for collaborative research. Dedicated analysts within the Sponsored Programs office carry out these duties. Each analyst is part of a team (led by a Contracts and Grants Officer) and is assigned to focus on either proposals or awards/subcontracts for a set of schools and/or colleges. To ensure a depth of knowledge in the department, analysts are required to cross-train in both proposals and awards/subcontracts.

Customer Service in Sponsored Programs

In addition to their specific duties, Sponsored Programs analysts also serve as the point of contact for a variety of customer groups, including sponsors, other UC Davis research units, faculty, and department staff. It is the philosophy of the Sponsored Programs office that providing high quality customer service is essential to ensuring positive and long lasting work relationships, both on and off the UC Davis campus. The staff in Sponsored Programs communicates with each of the customer groups to ensure that they understand the complex terms, conditions, and requirements that arise during the extramural funding process.
