Sponsored Research Administration (SRA)
Also known as "post-award," the sponsored research administration department serves two primary roles:
- Providing support and assistance to faculty on the administration, compliance and fiscal management of grants and contracts.
- Ensuring that funds are expended in accordance with the terms and conditions of the funding agency, SDSU Research Foundation policies/procedures and SDSU and CSU regulations.
In addition, the SRA department is responsible for the administration of gift funds on behalf of The Campanile Foundation, SDSU’s campus and community programs, and research support funds.
Grant specialists are located on and off-campus to provide PIs with on-site administrative support. PIs are generally matched with an SRA grant specialist located in the sponsored research administration office closest to their project offices. The assigned grant specialist will typically manage all of the SDSU Research Foundation and The Campanile Foundation funds associated with each PI, allowing the grant specialist to have a better overall picture of a PI’s financial resources and providing PIs with one individual to assist them in the management of their funds.
