Dear Colleagues,

I am pleased to provide you with the Office of the Vice President for Research (OVPR) Quarterly Summary of Sponsored Program Services Activity, as well as the NEW Quarterly List of Sponsored Program Services Awards, both for the third quarter of FY15.  These reports include data regarding Proposals, Awards and Expenditures for both research and non-research sponsored projects at Storrs and UConn Health.  Data is presented in two ways: by the PI’s Academic Home Department and by the Managing Department or Center/Institute.  This information is provided to you by the OVPR on a quarterly basis throughout the Fiscal Year. Please refer to the first pages of the reports for definitions/information regarding the data.

As was the case in the FY15 second quarter Summary, the data regarding increases in research activity is encouraging. For instance, in the first three quarters alone, award funding at Storrs has increased 16%, which translates to approximately $17M in additional award funding. Also of note: while proposals from UConn Health account for around 25% of total proposals, they constitute 45% of total funding requested.

Should you have any questions regarding these quarterly reports, please do not hesitate to contact me.

 

Sincerely,

jeffseemann

Dr. Jeff Seemann
Vice President for Research
UConn/UConn Health
