On April 15th, ORPA and SRA released an email to the Department Administrators providing guidance and offering virtual meeting registrations to review proper protocols for managing sponsored research accounts during the COVID-19 crisis.
ORPA and SRA have compiled key areas of focus that our research-related units should be considering for their sponsored projects during this unprecedented time. ORPA and SRA are offering several virtual workshops to discuss how the COVID-19 crisis is impacting your department. Registration is now available through the Employee Learning Center, under Finance and Treasury – Sponsored Research Accounting.
The COVID-19 crisis is constantly evolving, and as such, the management of the research enterprise may be additionally impacted as a result. Please keep an eye on the COVID-19 FAQs on the ORPA website for the latest information. Additional resources also include the University COVID-19: Coronavirus Information page and COVID-19 Information for Researchers on the Dean for Research website.
