RF Uses Funds for Sponsored Programs Administration

The RF uses the majority of its funds to run sponsored research programs at SUNY campuses as specified by the sponsoring entity. As covered in Funds Generated from Sponsored Programs Administration in Module One, funds come in to the RF in the form of grants and contracts and the RF manages these funds to ensure compliance with university, grant sponsor and government policies and procedures.

This service is called "Sponsored Programs Administration" and it is one of the essential services the RF provides to the SUNY research community.

What the Data Shows
The amount the RF expects to spend in 2016 on sponsored programs administration, in grants and contracts direct dollars, is $716.2 million.

With funding from the National Science Foundation, researchers at the SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry (ESF) are investigating the synthesis and properties of eco-friendly, bio-based materials.
