Sponsored Programs Administration

Throughout the life of your proposal and award, Sponsored Programs Administration (SPA) provides oversight and administrative support to investigators and departmental administrators.

UMB investigators were awarded $665.8 million in research, service, and training awards in Fiscal Year 2019. SPA will work with you to submit competitive proposals, negotiate agreements, and navigate the world of sponsored programs administration.
