Resources for grant administrators

Consortium website (screenshot)Whether you help faculty members develop grant proposals, prepare proposals for submission, or manage grants after they're awarded, the North Carolina Training Consortium (NCTC) can help you become more knowledgeable about the process and more effective and efficient in your work. The NCTC website provides context, background and explanatory information on the key areas of grant management:

  • The Framework for Research Administration: The federal regulatory environment, including financial, research integrity and practice; technology transfer; regulations relating to international research interactions; electronic research administration; contracting regulations; and regulatory compliance.
  • Project Development – The Pre-Award Stage: Types of proposals and awards, the federal peer review process, and how communications between applicant and sponsor are managed before the actual award.
  • Project Administration -- The Post-Award Stage: Award process, basic agreements, financial compliance, project support systems, project management, close-out.
  • A section on the profession of grant administration is in development.
