Research Quality Assurance
The Purdue University Board of Trustees designated December 27-29 as a winter recess. Combined with the annual University holidays, the full length of the closure will be from December 23, 2016 - January 2, 2017.
Sponsored Program Services Offices (SPS) are intending to be closed during this period and we ask that you plan ahead for any sponsored program activity that may be affected by the closure. SPS is dedicated to serving the research administration needs of the University community and will be monitoring our office email accounts to ensure we are available to address any emergency needs that may arise. These email addresses are listed below:
Please notify us immediately if you anticipate any proposal activity, contract deadlines, special billing needs, or other sponsor programs activity that require processing before calendar year end. Please plan accordingly, recognizing that December 22nd will be our last day in the office this year.
We wish you all a happy holiday season and we look forward to working with you in 2017.
The Research Quality Assurance (RQA) unit reviews and monitors Purdue’s research administration and research regulatory compliance practices and provides leadership when conducting comprehensive reviews of the University’s compliance activities. The RQA staff will coordinate education and training of Principal Investigators, project staff, and departmental and business office staff regarding compliance with federal and state regulation and Purdue policies relating to research.
The RQA unit does not assume the duties of the operational regulatory or business areas, and all compliance and sponsored program support activities will exist in their respective reporting structures. The RQA’s role is to monitor these efforts and assess University-wide performance.
RQA unit services include:
- Financial Management Reviews
- Research Regulation Reviews
- Recommend improved procedures
