More About OSR
The Office of Sponsored Research (OSR) provides pre-award and post-award administrative services for sponsored projects. We collaborate with partner groups in other central and school offices to coordinate research administration services, systems, and processes. We review and endorse sponsored projects proposals, negotiate and accept awards, and issue subawards on behalf of Stanford. In addition, we establish accounts in the financial system and fulfill sponsor's financial reporting requirements.
