About Us

Grant Management Services (GMS) is the College's one stop shop for all grant activity, from the grant application process to the grant closeout and everything in between. Our focus is to reduce the administrative burden from CLAS faculty so they can focus on their research. The GMS team has vast knowledge and experience with many grant sponsors and has a strong relationship with UConn’s central grants office, Sponsored Program Services. Each GMS team member values the time and effort it takes for a faculty member to receive grant funds and we do our part to ensure that the grant is properly managed according to the University and sponsor’s requirements.


Our office provides research assistance to faculty and staff including but not limited to:

  • Proposal and budget development (pre-award)
  • Liaison between faculty and Sponsored Programs Services (SPS) to facilitate submission
  • Principal Investigator financial portfolio planning and management (post-award)
  • Account forecasting, analysis, and maintenance
  • Time and effort compliance
  • Liaison between faculty, sponsored programs, and sponsor
  • Ensures compliance with all sponsor, federal, and University policies and guidelines
