The Office of Contracts and Grants (OCG) was created to support BUE researchers in developing new proposals, including budgets, and maintaining running grants, as well as offering related training. It serves our valued research community with high-quality expertise in support of sponsored research proposal and award administration. We commit to deliver timely, effective, and welcoming services through personal interactions and automated processes. The OCG serves as a point of contact for BUE community on contract and grant issues and relevant guidelines. It monitors proposal status and advises the Principal Investigator on requirements related to their project. The OCG develops mechanisms to support BUE researchers in identifying funding opportunities and in completing activities from proposal development to award closeout.
