Grant Support Center

The Grant Support Center is the sponsored research management unit of the OSUCCC – James. The Grant Support Center provides pre- and post-award compliance assistance to select investigators and their teams through a highly qualified group of research administrators.

Pre-Award

  • The Center provides extensive support with development and preparation of grant proposals.

  • Grants managers work with investigators on interpreting and following RFA/RFP/PA policies and guidelines.

  • Grants managers prepare budgets and assist in budget justifications.
    • Provide up-to-date salary information for project personnel
    • Calculate with appropriate Fringe Benefit rate and indirect

  • The PA-005 (Authorization to Seek Off-Campus Funding) begins the internal process for proposal submission. The grants manager starts and routes the form for all the required signatures and then files it with The Ohio State University Office of Sponsored Program (OSP).

  • Grants managers help format, compile, upload and submitting proposals.

  • Federal proposals: The Center typically assists with the completion of the face page and the routing for signatures, budgets and checklists. The Center also assists with "Just-in-Time" requests.

  • Private foundations/sponsors should complete proposal based on requirements, whether hard copy and/or online.

Post-Award

  • The Center provides real-time budget tracking and comprehensive financial oversight for sponsored projects, plans and provides fiscal management of grants, and ensures compliance with sponsor, university and third party regulations.

  • Grants managers send monthly reports to investigators identifying project financial summaries and status.

  • Grants managers work with investigators to appoint personnel to projects (Direct Appointment/Release Time) to reflect the true effort on projects.

  • Grants managers work with investigators in preparation and submission of research progress reports and final reports/closeout.

  • The Center works with investigators to establish subcontracts when collaborating with other investigators/institutions. Grants managers work directly with their institutional counterparts to initialize the contract process.
