Sponsored Accounting

The Office of Sponsored Accounting (OSA) works collaboratively with the Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP) to assist and support Syracuse University’s faculty and staff by providing guidance, assistance, education, and compliance with the financial management of sponsored projects.

OSA provides post-award financial administration of approved sponsored projects, contracts, and cooperative agreements on behalf of Syracuse University. Other duties include providing leadership in the development of strategies to effectively and efficiently meet the financial requirements of sponsoring organizations and supported units; providing service to all departments, department administrators, and grant/contract principal investigators through assistance in the business/financial aspects of sponsored projects; providing expertise in the administration of sponsored grants/contracts, including financial services to university departments and sponsoring agencies; and providing advice to department personnel and principal investigators in the financial management of their programs within the terms and conditions of the grant/contract federal regulation (e.g., OMB Circulars) NACUBO guidelines, and Syracuse policies.

OSP assists University faculty and staff with submission of proposals for external support of research, scholarship, education and training, and service/outreach activities. Responsibilities include, assuring that submitted proposals conform to University policies and sponsor guidelines, and if funded, that projects are compliant with sponsor requirements. For additional information, please visit OSP’s website.
