New Faculty Quick-Start Guide

Welcome to Southern Illinois University Carbondale!

The staff at the Office of Sponsored Projects Administration (OSPA) serves as the coordinating office for externally funded sponsored projects submitted by the University. The goal of OSPA is to assist faculty in their efforts to secure external funding. OSPA consists of both a Pre-Award Team, primarily responsible for proposal submission and award negotiation, and a Post-Award Team, responsible for managing the financial aspects of your award from account setup through closeout.

This quick start guide is designed to familiarize you with OSPA’s processes and website.
