SPA functions to support faculty research through the attraction of nationally competitive research and other sponsored program awards. The term "sponsored projects" refers to the externally-funded activities undertaken by faculty and/or administration to advance the mission of the University of South Alabama.
You are encouraged to use the resources available on the SPA web site and to maintain contact with College/Departmental Grants Administrators or the SPA staff to provide answers to your proposal-specific questions.
Research administration involves a number of University offices. Information on post-award financial administration, research compliance, and research development can be found at the Offices of Grants and Contracts Accounting, Research Compliance and Assurance, and Research Communication, Development, and Learning. (For information on sponsored activity at the University of South Alabama, please visit Research Reports.)
