SPA/OSP/CGA, in collaboration with SPROUT and an extensive network of MSU staff involved in pre-award, post-award and compliance aspects of research administration, provide the latest news, training, resources and information available to campus.
The ERA certification series provides training for research administrators and other support staff who have responsibilities for research proposals, grants, contracts, pre- and post-award administration and related activity at Michigan State University.
Registration is now LIVE! https://cga.msu.edu/PL/ERA/ERAPortal.aspx
Additional training opportunities are available from external sources, such as the National Council of University Research Administrators (NCURA) and The Society of Research Administrators International (SRA International).
Job aids and videos on proposal and budget development, reporting and general information are available.
Since going live with the Proposal Development and Conflict of Interest modules in Kuali Coeus (KC) on April 24, 2017, we’ve encountered and learned a great deal. We would like to share these things with campus with updates that will provide tips, instructions, bug fixes, training opportunities, system outages, etc.
The SPA/OSP/CGA training videos communicate the wealth of information that can be accessed by research faculty and administrators on project financial and administrative activity. Video training is intended to supplement classroom training and other educational opportunities offered through our offices.
