About Us

The Research Administration Systems team consists of 8 staff members and is led by Simone Alpen, Associate Director.

The Research Administration Systems team portfolio is made up of several systems that enable the sponsored research process. Research Administration Systems team members generally support one of the five systems supported with some serving as a “Lead” for the product. The Research Administration Systems team works closely with the Office for Sponsored Programs (OSP) and many of the schools to adequately develop and support existing systems. Access the FSS - Research Administration Systems Overview for an overview of the products, who we serve, how we achieve our business objectives, and an overview of the system(s)/ module(s) we support.

The team is responsible for delivering and supporting training solutions, managing system releases and enhancement, managing certification periods, and supporting sponsored research reports.
