Policies & Procedures

The Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP) is the single source for information and for administration of all research and/creative activity proposals and contracts on campus.  Any proposed project, whether submitted to the government, foundation, or corporate funding source, must have institutional approvals and reviewed by your OSP Proposal Specialist prior to submission. This includes projects where Rowan will be a subaward to another institution.

This page lists OSP’s policies and procedures. To find specific forms related to proposal submission or award management, please check here.
