Excellence in Research Administration

Streamlined Research

In accordance with the University Strategic Plan, we are scrutinizing and overhauling administration of research grants. We aim to be as efficient and supportive as possible in all phases of the grant process from proposal submission and negotiation of grant-related agreements to award setup, compliance, and reporting. In fall 2014, Rutgers evaluated research administration functions across all of Rutgers under the direction of Christopher Molloy and J. Michael Gower.

This effort included functions within the Office of Research and Economic Development (e.g., grant submissions, corporate contracts, institutional review boards, etc.) and the Division of Grant and Contract Accounting (e.g., post award, effort reporting, etc.) within the Office of the University Controller as well as the interface to the research administration functions within departments, schools, centers, and institutes.
