Grants in the COE

The Office of Research serves as

  1. support for grant procurement and administration;
  2. compliance monitoring; and
  3. liaison with the Office of Sponsored Programs and the Office of Grants and Contracts. 

The many responsibilities linked to grant development and administration (i.e. securing approval in RAMSES before grant submission, processing EPAFs to hire grant personnel and effort reporting, processing purchases and travel, and reconciling expenditures) are time sensitive and often involve multiple offices and groups on campus. Consequently, there are College of Education, Division of Academic Affairs, Research and Grants, and UNC-GA policies and procedures that must be followed to assure timeliness of submission and expenditures and compliance with University, General Administration, State and Federal requirements.
