Enrollment open: Essentials of Grant Administration, May 1 & 8

Research Administration Training & Education (RATE) is launching a new course this spring specifically designed for research support staff who coordinate sponsored project funding. The course, Essentials of Grant Administration, is intended to provide a comprehensive overview of grant administration at OHSU from the very first steps of finding funding all the way to close-out and publishing.

This “soup to nuts” course runs for two Tuesdays, May 1 and May 8, progressing from initiation to completion of the grant administration effort. The course includes:

  • The search for funding
  • Introduction to pre-award topics from PPQ completion to budget preparation and just-in-time requests
  • Highlighted compliance with ORIO
  • Examination of NIH policy, SPA forms and other post-award concerns
  • plus Public access and publishing

A number of presenters with topic expertise from Research Development and Administration units and other areas of OHSU Research will be coming together to paint the “big picture” of grant administration.

Prerequisites: It is expected that participants have completed the Responsible Conduct in Research (RCR) module in Big Brain, attended RDA 101: Introduction to Research Administration, and have also completed Oracle Grant Accounting (OGA) previous to the course start. To enroll in Essentials of Grant Administration or any of these other courses, please visit the RATE Courses web page or contact Margaret Gardner.
