Sponsor Electronic Portals

A variety of sponsors have an electronic system for proposal submission and award management. The Office of Sponsored Projects (OSP) helps to manage UNM's accounts and roles for these systems. Proposals submitted through an electronic portal always require OSP approval beforehand. 

Accounts can be required for PIs as well as administrators in order to prepare proposals and manage awards. OSP is the Authorizing and Signing Official within each system. Roles vary by system and are managed by OSP. If you do not see a system listed below, please contact OSP so we can establish an account. You can contact osp@unm.edu with any inquiries or general questions.
