Historical or Biographical Note

The Sponsored Research Office is now part of the Associate Vice President for Research & Graduate Studies. The Office of Research Services (ORS) was created to support the efforts of the GW community to generate and manage external awards in support of research, training, instruction, and public service activities. ORS works with investigators in every University component to decipher and adhere to University and sponsor regulations, while reducing time spent on the administrative aspects of sponsored activities. ORS is the University office designated to represent the University in providing the final institutional signature on proposals, in negotiating terms and conditions for grants, contracts, subcontracts, and other award mechanisms, and in dealing with administrative representatives of external sponsors on issues related to sponsored programs.
