Office of Research Services (ORS)

The Office of Research Services (ORS) is the central administrative office for managing proposal submissions, reporting to UNC General Administration, and outreach. We manage the institutional signature process for the Authorized Organizational Representatives (AORs). ORS provides support for the review and submission of proposals for sponsored projects. We can support you by reviewing and interpreting sponsor guidelines and regulations, preparing your budget documents, reviewing proposal packages for conformity to sponsor requirements, submitting and tracking your proposals. ORS also coordinates research-support efforts with college research officers and facilitates training opportunities for department and college administrators charged with helping faculty manage their grants.
