Sponsored Projects Administration (SPA), as part of Finance and Business Services, supports UTHealth faculty, staff, and students in the acquisition and administration of programs funded from sources outside the University. SPA is the central point of coordination and tracking for sponsored projects and is UTHealth’s authorized representative for grants, contracts, and other agreements from government agencies, private industry, and non-profit foundations.
SPA is comprised of the Grants Team, the Contracts Team, Post-Award Finance, Systems & Reporting, and Clinical Research Finance. SPA guides faculty and administrators in completing external applications; reviews and approves sponsored project budgets and applications; negotiates terms for government and non-profit grants, cooperative agreements, contracts, and subcontracts; establishes accounts and sets up budgets; processes budget revisions, no-cost extension requests, and grant transfers; provides assistance with external online grants/contracts systems; and negotiates the University’s federal indirect cost rate.
