The mission of the Office of Sponsored Programs is to provide the best service possible to the Virginia Tech faculty and staff in their pursuit and administration of external funding.
The Office of Sponsored Programs strives to be true to its mission of providing outstanding service to the faculty and staff in their pursuit and administration of external funding. The office provides full service throughout the lifecycle of a project, from preliminary budget review to award closeout. Our office structure is organized into pre-award and post-award. The pre-award teams handle the preliminary review and approval of all proposals as well as the negotiation and establishment of all awards. The post-award teams handle the administration of the awards including billing and closeout of the awards.
