OSP HOURS: Monday-Friday, 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.

The Office of Sponsored Projects (OSP) is the central office for managing proposal submissions, contract negotiations, award acceptance, and research compliance and ethics at UTHealth. OSP offers assurance to the potential sponsor that time and cost commitments are appropriate and all compliance issues (human subjects, animal use, export controls, and conflicts of interest) are adequately addressed. All grant proposals and contracts must be reviewed by OSP. This internal review process is necessary to ensure that contracts and proposals concur with the mission of the University, and adhere to all applicable federal, state, and institutional policies and guidelines.
