National Search for NSF Head, Office of Integrative Actitivies (OIA)

The National Science Foundation is donig a national search for the new Head of the Office of Integrative Actitivies (OIA).

NEW: Department Pre-award Liaison (PAL)

In an effort to construct departmental management tools for supervisors in areas with sponsored funding, a new field in Duke’s Sponsored Projects System (SPS*) has been created to help identify the person responsible for supporting principal investigators with the pre-award aspects of grant submission. The Department Pre-award Liaison (PAL) field was added to SPS* to help provide this clarity and facilitate the generation of pre-award management reports that can be shared with department, center, and institute research administrators. We envision this information to be useful for managers in determining the complexity and workload of the pre-award function within each unit and by each staff member.
