Government Shutdown As you know, a partial government shutdown has continued into the new year. While NIH, DOD, and the Department of Education are funded, others such as NSF, NASA, NOAA, USDA, NIST, and NEH are not. Agency Contingency Plans and FAQs can be found on the OMB website. Please note, any risk memo(s) submitted during the covered period of the government shutdown, will need to be reviewed very closely prior to approval, given that agencies are unlikely to reimburse us for work performed and not funded during the shutdown. Please note that this does not apply to those federal agencies (DOD, DoED, and NIH) which are currently funded. If you have any questions pertaining to the government shutdown and funding, please use the OMB link above or contact your OSP Administrator. The Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP) is your starting point for doing business with UAH faculty, research staff, and students. OSP will prepare/process the following: • Teaming Agreement • Non-Disclosure Agreement • Equipment/Facility Use Agreement • Proposal Preparation • Review/negotiate/execute all contract documents • Letters of Support/Intent • Certifications and Representations CONTACT US Office of Sponsored Programs VBH E-13 301 Sparkman Drive Huntsville, AL email@example.com Let Us Work With You! OSP is your first stop in the management of projects and contracts. We offer training on a number of different proposal processes and will work with you to ease the initial agreement discussions and then maintain compliance. Get started OSP Awesome Assets – January 2019 Each month the Office of Sponsored Programs recognizes one member of the staff for their outstanding support to the UAH research community and exemplary teamwork, we call them our “Awesome Asset.” This month, we will recognize the entire Research Information Systems (RIS) team: Rui Guo, Director, Scott Sandlin, Drew Hamilton, Paul Marshall and the RIS students for their exemplary support and service. The management of our information systems plays a very important role in OSP functions and support provided to the UAH Research Community, without the dedication of this team we could not perform our responsibilities in a timely, effective and efficient manner and the OVPRED would not have the data required to make sound business decisions as it relates to research. Thank you, your support and service are vital to our mission.
