Sponsored Projects Administration Overview
Sponsored Projects Administration (SPA), as part of Finance and Business Services, supports UTHealth faculty, staff, and students in the acquisition and administration of programs funded from sources outside the University. SPA is the central point of coordination and tracking for sponsored projects and is UTHealth’s authorized representative for grants, contracts, and other agreements from government agencies, private industry, and non-profit foundations.
SPA is comprised of the Office of Sponsored Projects, Post-Award Finance, and Systems & Reporting. These departments: guide faculty and administrators in completing external applications; review and approve sponsored project budgets and applications; negotiate terms for government and non-profit grants, cooperative agreements, contracts, and subcontracts; establish accounts and set up budgets; process budget revisions, no-cost extension requests, and grant transfers; provide assistance with external online grants/contracts systems; and negotiate the University’s federal indirect cost rate.
