The Office of Sponsored Projects (OSP) was established in 2018 at the University of
North Texas at Dallas. Our mission is to support research initiatives by providing
excellent administrative services to administration, faculty and staff in the pursuit
and management of sponsored projects and to engage in development strategies and activities
to further the university’s mission.
OSP consists of a Pre- and Post-Award team that serves as the coordinating office
for externally funded research. OSP is responsible for submitting all sponsored project
proposals on behalf of UNT Dallas to the respective entities (e.g., government – local,
state and federal; private; and nonprofit). OSP works closely with administration,
faculty and staff to assist and provide guidance in proposal development. OSP also
provides proposal review services. Additionally, OSP assists with proper stewardship
of award negotiations, award acceptance and closeout of awards received by UNT Dallas
while successfully ensuring the university’s integrity through the funding process.
Further, OSP works with faculty, staff and administration to facilitate and enhance
partnerships and collaborations between the UNT Dallas research community, federal
and state agencies, foundations, corporations and global research enterprises while
ensuring compliance with university and external agency guidelines.
