Dear Colleagues,


Introducing our new initiative, SPA 2.0, an innovative partnership program that creates the framework for a consistent and coordinated approach to sponsored project administration at UVM by having college research administration services become a unit of Sponsored Project Administration.


In FY22, CEMS, RSENR, and CALSX have joined SPA 2.0.


See What a SPA 2.0 PARTNERSHIP Looks LIke:


·      CEMS Pre and Post Award Research Administration

·      RSENR Pre and Post Award Research Administration

·      CALSX Post Award Research Administration

SPA 2.0 partnerships are currently sold out for FY22, but let’s start planning for FY23.


·         Step 1, is to review our template SPA 2.0 MOU.

·         Step 2, if interested send your questions to the SPA/SPA 2.0 Director at [log in to unmask] or [log in to unmask].

We believe SPA 2.0 will generate a more efficient and effective path for getting administration done, allowing our researchers to do more research.


Thank You,
