TTUHSC Research

Office of Sponsored Programs


The purpose of the Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP) is to support faculty and staff in identifying, obtaining, and maintaining external funding that supports the TTUHSC mission of instruction, research, and patient care.  Numerous resources are utilized to assist faculty in identifying possible funding opportunities, including Pivot/Community of Science (COS), a comprehensive funding database.  OSP is responsible for the appropriate and successful processing of grant proposals, as well as interpreting, negotiating, and accepting awards/agreements on behalf of the institution in the form of Federal grants/contracts, State awards/contracts, private foundation funding, and subawards stemming from these prime award sources.  Upon receipt of an award, OSP provides assistance and oversight, including budget set-up and project revisions.
