The management and administration of sponsored programs is complex and must be carried out in compliance with UW policy, federal and state laws, sponsor requirements and award terms and conditions. UW Research Administrators must navigate policies, procedures, and systems in an effort to ensure that sponsored programs are appropriately managed while providing excellent customer service. The courses and resources below will help individuals understand and implement these responsibilities to ensure compliance and protect the university and faculty.
RED: Research-Education-Development is RSP's educational program for research administrators at the UW. RSP is currently collaborating with campus subject matter experts in dean's offices and departments to ensure development of high quality and beneficial learning experiences through the RED program.
Through RED, we hope to provide a network of resources to staff, build competencies across campus, and promote efficiency and compliance in an open and inclusive training environment.

Payroll must be certified for faculty, staff and trainees who have salary charged (direct or cost shared) to federally sponsored projects. Project-based payroll statements are certified biannually by the project's Principal Investigator. ECC (Employee Compensation Compliance) is the web-based system used to facilitate these certifications. Learn more here.
"ECC for Certifiers" is mandatory for PIs who need to complete certifications.
"Basics of Effort, Commitments and Payroll Certification" introduces the most important concepts in all three realms. While not mandatory, faculty, and other members of the research community that engage in sponsored projects, will find the overview useful.
