OSP is now offering new faculty lunches on what we strive to be a monthly basis. These lunches are aimed at introducing our services to new hires and discussing processes and procedures for submitting proposals, transferring awards, and managing projects.
Please forward this opportunity to any interested faculty members. All lunches are held in the Ferst Place dining room in the Student Center.
Upcoming New Faculty Orientation Lunches Ferst Place Dining Room, Student Center
In asking for identification of “other support” in a grant application, a funding agency’s interests include, but are not limited to, identifying and eliminating duplication of funding for specific budgetary items, understanding the investigator’s capacity to complete projects (e.g., effort available), protect national security or economic interests, and assess potential conflicts of interest.
When Georgia Tech answers a call for proposals to solve a public problem, such as a national security initiative, development of transportation or its infrastructure, medical research or an industry-specific challenge, certain direct costs associated with the project at hand are easily identified and assigned to a project budget submitted with the proposal. However, other expenses support the aggregate of research and development at Georgia Tech and therefore are not as easily tracked in the budget of a single project.
Greetings Colleagues! Here are some of the upcoming dates for OSP outreach and office hours. These are additional ways for you to receive one-on-one support for your proposals and research administration needs.
We would also like to announce two additional office hours dates centered around NSF CAREER Proposals. These will be held in the RAB Seminar Room—come work on your CAREER proposals with your NSF Contracting Officers available to answer any questions you might have.
Interested in more professional development but have a limited travel budget?
Please join us in Milledgeville on May 22nd for the annual Georgia Research Administrators Network conference. The event is from 8 a.m. until 12 p.m. and will be held at Georgia College and State University. The event is free, but space is limited. Sign up early via this link.

When we think of compliance and sponsored research, our minds usually go to human subjects protocols, unallowable costs, or export controls. Compliance with sponsor requirements for deliverables is equally important, though often overlooked. While responsibility for timely submission of deliverables and technical reports falls to the PI, it is imperative that we as research administrators understand the requirements as well.
December 31: DFARS/NIST 800-171 and New Mandatory Standards for Federal Research
The National Institute of Standards and Technology’s (NIST) Special Publication 800-171 aims to consolidate the Federal government’s procedures for handling Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI), including CUI found in systems operated by federal contractors such as Georgia Tech. In the spirit of open government, these regulations aim to share government data with appropriate entities such as research universities, while keeping it out of the hands of prohibited audiences.
