Electronic Research Administration (ERA)

Electronic Research Administration is becoming the means by which many grant agencies conduct their business. Increasingly, grant proposals are required to be submitted electronically via the computer, and subsequent grant business is also completed online.

Faculty and staff are asked to check grant program guidelines closely to determine if electronic proposal submission is required and, if so, contact Sponsored Programs Administration staff as soon as possible to allow time for the necessary administrative preparations. Each proposal submission offers unique challenges which the SPA staff can help resolve, saving you time and effort.

Questions? Call Marie Slanger at 231-5259.
