The Grants and Contracts Department supports the Research Mission of the University of Alaska Anchorage.  We are dedicated to assisting our faculty Principal Investigators grow research.


Welcome to UAA Grants and Contracts

The University of Alaska Anchorage Grants and Contracts staff members are here to assist in the post-award administration of sponsored programs in concert with Principal Investigators and departmental administrators.

Sponsored project grants and contracts are legally and mutually binding agreements between the agency and the University of Alaska Anchorage.

Staff members are committed to aiding departments in achieving compliance with policies, university procedures, OMB Circulars and financial accounting practices. Although awards are issued to the institution, Principal Investigators have the primary responsibility for achieving the technical success of the project. Compliance with the financial and administrative policies and regulations associated with the award are essential to successful sponsored project administration. The obligation of the Grants and Contracts Office is to adhere to all terms and conditions of the award and to adequately document all expenditures in accordance with the sponsor regulations. Our files are the repository of all auditable fiscal documentation for UAA restricted funds.
