OGM and RAS are the central departments at Howard University responsible for addressing the communication and training needs of the University's research community. They offer a variety of resources that provide researchers with the proper tools to successfully find funding opportunities, prepare proposals, and manage awards.
Sponsored Research Certification Program
The Sponsored Research Certification Program has 8 modules and is designed to provide mandatory compliance training to research faculty and staff. It is imperative that all faculty and their research staff fully participate in this training.
Certification is required for adequate management of external research projects. Once certified, research faculty and staff are required to re-certify every 3 years.
RAS, OGM and the Provosts office are working in unison to provide all the resources you need to certify your effort quickly and painlessly. It is a contractual obligation of performing the research, training and service projects Howard conducts according to our sponsor requirements.
