OSP vs. SPA

January 17, 2019 - 3:00 pm to 4:00 pm

When it comes to the fiscal management of sponsored projects, the offices of Sponsored Projects and Sponsored Programs Accounting play very different, yet equally vital roles at Mississippi State. Both of these offices are available not only to provide regulatory and administrative support, but also to share guidance and resources for fiscal accountability and best management practices in complying with sponsor and institutional policies. During this session, participants will meet the individuals responsible for pre- and post-award services and will learn about the specific roles and responsibilities of each. Topics of discussion include organizational structure and contact information; forms, processes and procedures; and guidance on potentially complicated issues, such as budgeting and managing overhead costs, leveraging resources, as well as cost sharing/in-kind matches. Staff members and leadership from both OSP and SPA will be available to answer questions as well. This session is appropriate for sponsored project lead investigators/directors (PD/PI, Co-PI, etc.), department administrators, business managers, grants and contracts administrators, and any sponsored project personnel.
