Services

Sponsored Projects Administration provides both pre and post award services to Tulane University Downtown Campus. Staff members aid investigators in the development of budgets for grant and contract proposals, and in filing required compliance documents.

Sponsored Projects Administration personnel also engage in fiscal and business negotiations with awarding agencies, prime contractors, and subcontractors to ensure compliance with university and federal regulatory policies. Additionally, the business management associated with the award and post award activities of all grants and contracts at the Downtown Campus is administrated by this office.

Sponsored Projects Administration staff coordinates the review and execution of Research Agreements (i.e. drug studies), prepares and executes all required subcontracts, and maintains a grants and contracts database.
