This past summer, a workgroup consisting of members from across the various colleges, schools, and departments at UC Riverside, convened to begin developing a Roles and Responsibilities Matrix as a tool to identify who predominantly has responsibility for a given role/activity within the Life Cycle of an Award.  We are pleased to announce that the Roles and Responsibilities Matrix is now completed and has been posted on SPA’s webpage here<https://research.ucr.edu/spa/roles_and_responsibilites> under Contract and Grant Lifecycle.

A Special Note of Thanks to The Following Individuals Who Served on the Roles and Responsibilities Matrix Workgroup and to Those Who Served as an Additional Contributor:

Huguette Albrecht, Assistant Director for Research Development, BCOE
Ashley Nicole Beene, Grants Facilitator, CNAS
Fred Devera, Fund Manager, BFS
Aurelia Espinoza, Manager Sponsored Research and Programs, SOM
Stan Fletcher, Director of Systems Management, RED
Charles E. Greer, Jr., Associate Vice Chancellor for Research, RED
Lynda Jenkins, Senior Grant Writer/Facilitator, RED
Pauline M Librenjak, Assistant Controller, BFS
Camille Mahant, Financial and Administrative Analyst, UCR Libraries
Bobbi McCracken, Associate Vice Chancellor-Business & Financial Services, BFS
Christine Morgando, Financial Operations Manager (Interim), BMPN Administration
Linda Phi-Nguyen, Contract & Grant Analyst, CHASS
Laura Schulte, Senior Administrative Officer, Enrollment
Jennifer A Talbot-Encinas, Financial Administrative Manager, School of Business
Cynthia J. Wells, Assistant Vice Chancellor for Sponsored Programs, RED

Note: Due to operational structure variances within the cross-section of the workgroup, it was necessary to keep the responsibilities listed at a high level; and not get into the weeds by adding too many details or additional responsibilities, so that this matrix would apply to a greater percentage of the campus.  Should you have any questions or concerns, please contact Cynthia Wells, Assistant Vice Chancellor for Sponsored Programs, at cwells at ucr.edu<mailto:cwells at ucr.edu>.

Sponsored Programs Administration (SPA) has launched a new on-demand education training portal containing
video webinars and supporting resources which will walk the participant through the entire life cycle of an award.

Please join Research Administrators INC on Monday, February 8th at Noon as we dive into the 1st of a 3-part series on Budgeting.

Are you ready to start building your sponsored project or idea, but do not know what and how much to ask for? If preparing a budget for your grant or contract is daunting for you, come learn the basic elements of how to draft a project budget with confidence.  An effective budget can be a productive tool in driving towards your goals for the entire life of the project. We also need to ensure that we have the funds needed to complete the project successfully and do not to leave resources on the table.

This 3-part series will walk through the development of a project budget including: what costs need to be covered, categorization of budget costs by differing sponsors, utilizing the appropriate rates as required and more. (Each part is 90 minutes in length.)

Learning objectives:

  *   The basic components of a project budget
  *   How to estimate the realistic cost of a project
  *   What other documents you may also need to submit with your proposal

To receive the ZOOM link to this meeting, please register here<https://redit.ucr.edu/OrApps/Org/OrgEvents/Default.aspx?g=inc>

It is not too late to join Research Administrators INC as we dive into the third of a three-part series on Proposal Development.  This third 90-minute webinar, on Thursday, January 28th at Noon, will discuss proposal planning, logistics, and financial and compliance considerations.
