Sponsored Projects Office (SPO)

The Sponsored Projects Office (SPO) at UC Merced is home to the campus-delegated Authorized Organization Representative (AOR). It serves as the official liaison between the university and sponsoring agencies: federal, state, local, foundations, industry, or other public and private sources.


SPO staff supports the preparation, review, authorization, and submission of research, training, and other sponsored activities proposals to externally funded sponsors. SPO Contract and Grant Officers are responsible for award negotiation and acceptance.
