Course Description: How do you apply the core competencies of research administration to your daily life as Departmental, Pre-award or Post-award administrator in today’s world? What do the audits at other institutions tell you about what you should be looking for at your institution? How are other institutions changing their practices to keep pace with changes in the regulations?

Current “hot topics” case studies, that have been constructed using real life scenarios, serve as the core of thought-provoking workshop. Participants will apply the foundational principles of the OMB Circulars, federal regulations and common institutional policies and procedures to work through the many shades of grey that make up the research administration kaleidoscope. This promises to be a lively, highly interactive experience that will allow attendees to learn from the instructors as well as the other attendees.

  • Participants will gain an understanding of how to keep an institution’s own policies, procedures and processes from being an audit risk.
