About the Office of Sponsored Programs
The Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP) provides central coordination and oversight of Penn State sponsored projects. This includes processing proposals and negotiating resultant grants, contracts, and other agreements. All agreements are reviewed to confirm that the terms and conditions:
- protect the interests of Penn State faculty members and students,
- protect Penn State's institutional interests,
- are consistent with Penn State's policies and mission statement, and
- are consistent with all applicable state and federal laws.
After agreements are put in place, OSP coordinates efforts with research administrators across Penn State to ensure that all sponsored funds are administered in accordance with the agreed upon terms and conditions.
