|Research Administration Pods||
GW uses a “pod” model for sponsored research administration. Each pod supports two or more schools and their affiliated research centers and institutes. Pods manage the complete lifecycle of a sponsored research project and provide continuity from inception to award closeout.
The pods are school-led and include both school and central research administrators. Each pod has pre-award, post-award and contracting functions. All Office of Sponsored Projects (OSP) staff report to the central office, including the pre-award, post-award and contracting officers that are embedded within the pods.
OVPR Sponsored Projects Staff
The Assistant Vice Provost for Sponsored Projects and the Office of Sponsored Projects oversees OVPR’s pre-award services, award negotiation & setup, and post-award services.
