  • The Power of Metrics in Research Administration

    Includes a Live Event on 10/30/2018 at 2:00 PM (EDT)

    This webinar will be a dive deep into what metrics can really do for us. We will discuss how metrics can help us support and improve our business processes and manage risk at an advanced level.

    90 minutes: This webinar will be a dive deep into what metrics can really do for us.  We will discuss how metrics can help us support and improve our business processes and manage risk at an advanced level. 

    Over the past decade, many institutions have invested in institutional systems that can be leveraged to support metric analysis.  Duke University is one of these universities and they have built a comprehensive structure for utilizing their data to support, build, and manage their operations.  At Duke University, they have institutional systems for proposal submission, purchasing, travel, ledger, closeout, post-award processes, training, etc.  The data from these systems is integrated to create monitoring metrics for cost-transfers, effort reporting, and other compliance requirements. These metrics are now available for data mining, analysis, and visualization to support the research mission and faculty more effectively.  The integrated data supports improved compliance, business operations, workload management and more at the departmental, school, and institutional levels.
     
    Also discussed will be what we can learn from the data we gather about awards, proposals, and other key areas.  Trend analysis can assist us in forecasting the future as well as identifying our challenges and opportunities. 
     
    This is an evolving field and, regardless of your institution’s scale, there are numerous opportunities to use your data to understand your institution better.  Please join us to further explore what research administration metrics can do for us.

  • Growing a Grant Seeking Culture in the Arts and Humanities

    Includes a Live Event on 10/24/2018 at 2:00 PM (EDT)

    Many faculty members within the arts and humanities are not aware of the sponsored funding opportunities available, and therefore do not pursue external resources. This webinar will offer concrete examples of best practices to promote, support, and sustain a grant-seeking culture in the arts and humanities.

    90 Minutes: Many faculty members within the arts and humanities are not aware of the sponsored funding opportunities available, and therefore do not pursue external resources. Other faculty members may be aware of grants and fellowships, but reluctant to put time and energy toward proposal writing in light of their many other academic commitments or preconceived notions of what a grant can fund. How can we support researchers and artists who may be completely new to pursuing funding opportunities? In the same vein, how can we persuade hesitant faculty of the benefits of submitting proposals? This webinar will offer concrete examples of best practices to promote, support, and sustain a grant-seeking culture in the arts and humanities. We will discuss:

    • Outreach to and strategic programming for arts and humanities faculty who are new to, or hesitant about pursuing sponsored funding for their research activities and creative work;
    • Best practices for disseminating funding opportunity announcements and newsletters to this broad, often multidisciplinary, audience;
    • Examples of proposal development tools for arts and humanities faculty; and
    • Providing support throughout the grant lifecycle for faculty and staff in these departments.

    We will draw from the perspectives of an R1 institution and a PUI to offer concrete and adaptable practices for growing a grant seeking culture in the arts and humanities.

    Prerequisites: Participants should have experience with pre-award proposal development, and a desire to work with faculty from across the arts and humanities to identify external funding opportunities.

    Speakers:
    Paige Belisle, Research Development Officer, Harvard University
    Jimmy Matejek-Morris, Sponsored Research Administrator for the Arts and Humanities, Harvard University

  • Compensation/Effort Reporting Internal Controls throughout the Lifecycle of a Sponsored Project

    The presenters will explore compensation/effort reporting internal controls with a focus on all aspects spanning from the initial development of a proposal through closeout of a sponsored award.

    90 Minutes: The Uniform Guidance emphasizes the importance of strong internal controls, especially in the documentation of personnel costs. Research Administrators interface with personnel costs throughout the lifecycle of a sponsored project, so considerations for internal control development should focus on more than just the after-the-fact reporting process. The presenters will explore compensation/effort reporting internal controls with a focus on all aspects spanning from the initial development of a proposal through closeout of a sponsored award. This webinar will briefly cover the Uniform Guidance requirements for the documentation of personnel costs and then focus on key areas that deserve attention when developing and testing internal controls, applicable to both traditional effort reporting and alternative methodologies. Please bring your suggestions and questions for a lively discussion! 

    Prerequisite: Participants will need a basic understanding of the principles surrounding the documentation of personnel costs.

    Speakers:

  • Export Controls: The Basics That Research Administrators Need to Know

    The U.S. export control regulations are about sensitive research…and so much more. In this webinar, we'll walk through the framework behind the three core government agencies and their export control regulations.

    90 Minutes: The U.S. export control regulations are about sensitive research…and so much more.  Export controls has an expansive impact across an institution, requiring support from departments across the board from Research Compliance to Human Resources and Purchasing.  Compliance with these federal regulations is a critical component of an effective university research administration program.  

    In this webinar, we'll walk through the framework behind the three core government agencies and their export control regulations:  Department of Commerce (Export Administration Regulations (EAR), Department of State International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), and the Department of Treasury Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) regulations.

    We’ll explain core concepts that research administrators must understand when determining a university’s requirements.  These concepts will include the fundamental research exclusion (or FRE), public data, patented information, export control classifications, government licensing requirements, denied or restricted parties, and sanctioned countries.  The webinar will connect these regulatory concepts with sponsored research proposals, Pre-Award contract analysis, and overall supporting faculty in their research endeavors.  We’ll discuss how the export controls regulations relate to your day-to-day work through case studies and Q&A.
