The Office of Sponsored Research is the University’s central office responsible for supporting and advancing the University’s research mission by providing leadership and expertise in research administration. Under the University’s Research Compliance Program, the Office of Sponsored Research works closely with the Export Compliance office to identify and address export control issues related to the research performed at UNC-Chapel Hill.

The Office of Sponsored Research is responsible for:

  • Reviewing terms of sponsored program agreements and other non-monetary agreements to identify restrictions on publication and dissemination of research results, and negotiate out such restrictions.
  • Aiding principal investigators in identifying potential export control issues in sponsored research agreements.
  • Communicating identified potential export control issues to the Export Compliance office and affected principal investigators.
  • Informing the Export Compliance office about changes in awards or project scope that necessitate additional export compliance reviews.
