Training

Sponsored Programs Administration is committed to providing flexible training options to our various campus stakeholders.

As you will see we have broken the training sessions into three main categories. The first is training for our research engaged faculty. These trainings will be tailored to focus on the required elements of proposal generation and submission in the system.

The second grouping focuses on our campus administration staff members who will be reviewing proposals for accuracy, compliance and/or working with our faculty on a daily basis to prepare their proposals. These sessions will point the administration staff toward areas that they will need to pay particular attention toward such as budgeting, proposal attachments, and credit distribution.

The third group includes training for our campus reviewers of proposals before submission to a sponsor. If you are a reviewer and would like one-on-one training, you may email pacssupport@albany.edu.

Furthermore, Sponsored Programs Administration is committed to meet individual training needs of all our campus stakeholders, and welcomes, if needed to train one-on-one. To inquire further about these opportunities, please email pacssupport@albany.edu.
