Who is my GCO (Grant & Contract Officer)

GCOs provide research administration services, including review and submission of proposals, award negotiation, award management and award close out activities, to all researchers and departments funded by the Center Sponsors.

    The Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP) is organized into three Centers of Expertise: Federal, States and Foundations, and Industry.


    Go to Federal Team  |  Go to States and Foundations Team  |  Go to Industry Team


    Grant and Contract Officers (GCOs) have an in-depth understanding of the requirements, business practices, and applicable regulatory considerations of the sponsor(s) with whom their assigned Center is aligned.

    Note: for multi-sponsored projects contact the Grant and Contract Officer supporting the primary sponsor.
