ORPA ANNUAL REPORT
This report, prepared by the Office of Research and Project Administration (ORPA), provides an overview of sponsored program activities for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2012.
Revenue from sponsored program activities, vital to the sustaining of research and graduate programs, remains an essential component of the University's current fund expenditure and general budget. The University consistently finds itself in the top thirty of colleges and universities receiving funding for research and other sponsored activities. Our continued high ranking is a significant indicator of the quality of the research conducted, of the faculty who perform such research at the University, and of the staff who support their efforts in laboratories and offices throughout the University.
Statistics on proposals submitted and awards received are used as a primary point of reference in this report. These statistics portray sponsored programs funding requested and received in the current fiscal year and will, over time, provide an indication of funding trends. Expenditure statistics are also presented. These latter data not only provide an indication of the level of expenditure for research, training, and other associated sponsored program activities at the University, but also a basis for comparison with other colleges and universities nationwide. The expenditures reported may differ slightly from the University's end-of-year financial statements. These differences are reconciled by various ledger adjustments and other transfers. In addition, there are departmental research activities conducted with funds from gifts or direct University funding. These activities are not reflected in this report.
Comments about the report are welcomed.
