Sponsored Projects Administration (SPA), Research Protections (RP) and Conflict of Interest in Research (COI) comprise the Research Administration units of the Office of Research. SPA is the office of record for extramural proposals and awards supporting UCI's research, education and public service programs; it is also responsible for overseeing and facilitating export control compliance in research. The RP and COI units manage faculty-based regulatory review functions as required by federal and state regulations and UC policy. Research Administration personnel are expert resources for policy and program information. As such, they act as administrative officials (through delegation of authority) with external sponsors, regulatory agencies, higher education organizations, and professional societies regarding regulatory changes, institutional policy development and implementation of regulatory requirements and enhancements.
