Grants and Contracts Data Specialist, Main Campus Office of Research Services - Vice Provost for Research

Georgetown's Main Campus Office of Research Services (OSR) has adopted a lifecycle management approach to research administration. This means that teams within our office are organized to manage proposals from the beginning, or ‘pre-award,' stage of a project through to the termination, or closeout, of an award. This comprehensive approach helps the teams to better understand the entire cycle of an award in all of its stages, rather than only gaining familiarity with one phase. Our website is organized by lifecycle phase from Finding Funding to Closing Out an Award.
