MyResearch Portal version 2.0 should be used for all sponsored research related information.   UIeRA/InfoEd is no longer available. ORSWeb is now live for all departments to submit documents via ORSWeb, our new web based document delivery system.  Access ORSWeb and visit our website for instructions.

The Office of Research Services (ORS) handles all pre-award and non-financial post-award activities. Pre-award activities include activities from the pre-proposal stage to the receipt and processing of the award, up to the point of account set up. We assist faculty and staff in proposal development, review and endorsement of proposals, submission of electronic proposals, negotiation and execution of contracts, reporting, receipt and processing of the Notice of Awards (NOA), interpretation of sponsor guidelines, and ensuring compliance with both agency and University policies. We also develop and communicate institution-wide policies specific to sponsored programs.

Our ultimate goal is to support sponsored research by providing exceptional service, expertise, and education while maintaining a collaborative model of stewardship among all University faculty and staff.
