Research Foundation

The Research Foundation at SUNY Old Westbury assists interested faculty and staff members in the pursuit and management of grant and award opportunities. Our campus Research Foundation is organized into two separate offices, the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs and the Grants Management Office.

This website relates to the functions of the Grants Management Office.

The Office of Grants Management (GMO) is the post-award unit that is the compliance and fiscal steward of the grant fund once they are awarded by the sponsor. The Grants Management team supports the work and collaborates with service faculty and staff grant recipients in the effective and efficient administration of their Research Foundation accounts within the guidelines and regulations of Sponsors, Federal, New York State and the Research Foundation. GMO manages grant funds once an award is made. It monitors and processes expenditures according to the grant budget, prepares and maintains all grant records including payroll, personnel and patents.
