- Procurement through University Business Services
- Grant-related hiring through the UConn Payroll Department
CLAS Grant Management Services can help you prepare your grant proposal, develop your budget, and interface with other necessary offices on campus.
Our team works with you to prepare materials for grant applications. GMS officers can provide individualized feedback and make recommendations to help you build a stronger proposal. We also collaborate with the Dean’s Office to provide grant application training sessions for researchers in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.
Our team members can walk you through the administrative processes and forms associated with grant proposal submissions. We also serve as a liaison between you and UConn Sponsored Program Services to:
- Ensure compliance with all sponsor, federal, and University policies and guidelines.
- Prepare your proposal and develop your budget.
- Facilitate the submission of your proposal.
CLAS Grant Management Services continues to support you once you secure your award by providing guidance on finances and reporting.
Account Setup and Management
Our team works with Principal Investigators (PIs) to set up their accounts. Our reports help PIs plan for the future through account forecasting, analysis, and maintenance. We also liaise between faculty, UConn Sponsored Program Services, and sponsors to help with effort reporting on grants.
Grant Management and Sponsored Program Services work with the Principal Investigator to ensure that all expenditures have been posted and that all agency-specific and University requirements have been met.
