Sponsored Programs and Grants Management (SPGM) is the pre- and post-award administration office for all externally sponsored projects for Radford University. SPGM provides assistance in proposal budget development and proposal submission.  The office also reviews and signs off on all proposals to external sponsors. All contracts with the University which involve sponsored projects are reviewed, negotiated, and executed by SPGM.

When awards are received, SPGM generates budgets in Banner. SPGM works with researchers, departmental administrators and other administrators to resolve problems of institutional cost sharing, contractual terms, and budget matters. Changes to the accounts, communication with sponsors and project closeout are also coordinated through SPGM. SPGM reviews and advises the Radford University research community on matters of new or revised federal and state laws, rules, and regulations that affect research administration.
