Research Administration Pods

A new “pod” model has been introduced for sponsored research administration at the George Washington University (GW). Each pod supports two or more schools and their affiliated research centers and institutes. Pods manage the complete lifecycle of a sponsored research project and provide continuity from inception to award closeout.

The pods will be school-led and include both school and central research administrators. Each pod will have pre-award, post-award and contracting functions. All Office of Sponsored Projects (OSP) staff will continue to report to the central office, including the pre-award, post-award and contracting officers that are embedded within the pods.
