  • Review, endorse, and submit proposals for sponsored research, training, and public service projects
  • Review, negotiate, and accept a broad array of grants, contracts, and subcontracts that support sponsored projects
  • Advise and assist Upstate faculty and department administrators in interpreting award terms and conditions and resolving problems that may develop prior to accepting the award.
  • Assist and advise on budget development (indirects, fringe benefits and allowable costs)
