OSP Mission and Vision


The Office of Sponsored Projects (OSP) under the direction of the Office of the Vice President for Research (OVPR) and the Financial Services Division (FSD) supports the University’s research mission by providing administration, management and oversight of extramural sponsored research.

OSP provides support and assistance with proposal submission and management of successfully awarded projects. The OSP office works closely with faculty, department administrators and support staff across the Main and Branch campuses to ensure project success and compliance throughout the sponsored projects lifecycle.


Our mission is to provide the University of New Mexico’s research community with professional expertise and quality customer service in the pursuit and management of external funding. We aspire to further this mission by being a resource to support the Research Strategic Plan and embracing the transparency and compliance aspects of our charge.


In supporting faculty and staff engaged in sponsored research activity, our vision is to implement and deliver efficient and effective procedural and system enhancements to research administration processes in an effort to minimize administrative burden on researchers and emphasize enterprise-wide efficiencies in research support operations, while maintaining internal controls and regulatory compliance.
