Office of Sponsored Programs

The Office of Sponsored Programs provides leadership, information, services, and support to faculty and staff in the acquisition and administration of externally funded, competitive grants. OSP ensures that Pitt Community College complies with the regulations and guidelines of sponsoring agencies and with internal institutional policies and procedures. OSP coordinates activities with the Business Office of Administrative Services with regard to requests for funding from Federal, State and local government sources as well as non-governmental sources, ensuring the integrity of accounting and financial information and reports.

OSP coordinates pre-award activities such as ensuring compliance with the granting agency and college policies; serving as the primary liaison and advisor to grant-writing teams; and providing grant opportunity information to faculty and administrators. The Office of Sponsored Programs, in coordination with Administrative Services, is also responsible for performing post-award grant management duties, including compliance, reporting and financial oversight. A college program is “sponsored” if it solicits and receives a restricted award (i.e. the funds can only be used for that program) from a source outside the normal operating budget (i.e. financed through external funds) in order to support various instructional and public service activities.

OSP also processes IRB requests submitted to PCC for review and processing.
