Research Administration

The University of Maryland’s (UMD) reputation as a premier research institution depends on its reputation for research integrity. It is in this spirit that we expect all research undertaken at the institution to meet the highest standards for integrity in all areas of research endeavors (e.g., authorship and publication; data management and reporting; export compliance; conflict of interest and conflict of commitment disclosures and transparency; mentorship; use of human subjects or animals; laboratory, biological and radiation safety; financial management and reporting) as established by the international research community. To that end, we are dedicated to providing our faculty, students, trainees, and staff with the support, education, and resources necessary to ensure a culture of integrity in every aspect of their work.

The Associate Vice President for Administration’s responsibilities include oversight of pre-award activities, such as proposal preparation and submission, award negotiation and management, sub-award issuance and monitoring; post-award activities, including financial reporting, financial compliance, invoicing, costing, audit and investigations support; electronic research administration; administrative oversight of regulatory compliance committees (including the use of human subjects, animal welfare, export controls, and conflicts of interest); research information, transparency, integrity and business intelligence analysis and strategic research administrative processes, including providing guidance and support to complex interdisciplinary Centers and Institutes.
